This is a Maxwellian distribution, which shows the number of air particles per unit volume as a function of their velocity, for a couple of normalized onedimensional Maxwellians for dry air at about 81 degrees F.

So while the Maxwellians (those electrodynamicists who came after Maxwell) were busy exploring the mathematical implications of Maxwell's theory (including Oliver Heaviside who, via vector calculus, reduced the theory to the set of equations seen on Tshirts today), Kelvin busied himself with trying to work out the correct model of the aether demanded by the mathematics.
