The distribution of velocities of particles in plasma is a well understood discipline of plasma physics. Boltzmann&rsquo;s law and the MaxwellBoltzmann distribution describe the distribution of velocity of a particle in plasma as a function of mass and temperature. Particles with the same mass tend to have the same velocity. By expressing the same law in terms of energy alone, the author obtains a distribution independent of mass. In summary, for particles in plasma, the energies tend to equalize, independent of the masses of the individual particles. For highenergy plasma, the original law predicts velocities greater than the speed of light. If one uses Einstein&rsquo;s formula for energy (Emc2), then a relativistic correction is not required.
