Özet

Density distribution of an ideal Maxwellian gas confined in a finite domain is not. uniform even in thermodynamic equilibrium. Near to the boundaries, there is a layer in which the density goes to zero. Existence of this boundary layer explains the shape and size dependence of the thermodynamic quantities in nano scale.
