April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Thermalization is the process of particles reaching thermal equilibrium through mutual interaction. We see this process around us every day. Take for example, ice cubes dropped into a pot of hot water. The cubes melt and cannot remain stable. Well-ordered ice crystals turn into a disordered liquid as the molecules of the ice and the molecules of the water reach thermal equilibrium, ending up at the same temperature. Research at the...
