Why is there a $\frac23$ term?
I fully understand that it makes sense for pressure to be the volume weighted average kinetic energy. And the equation above shows that this is so (for an ideal gas). I also fully understand how to prove this with momentum and force. I'm wondering is there an intuitive reason why the for one cubic meter, the the pressure should be two thirds of the total internal kinetic energy, not some other value. Or is it just because the math says so?
