Brownian Motion 3

In this simulation particles begin a 60-step random walk from the origin. The x-values at the end of the walk are tallied, and a running frequency graph is displayed. This graph tends towards a fixed limit as the number of trials increases: the famous Gaussian distribution (aka, the infamous Bell curve).

Click the mouse button inside the graph to suspend (or resume) the simulation.
