How can one plot a Maxwell Distribution function in LaTeX? I want to make a similar graph like in this attached image file so that I can work on adding some more information on it with my document. Thanks.
I suggest to use either pgf/tikZ or pst-plot (based on pstricks). You know the mathematical function for this distribution so that it should be no big deal to plot it and add annotations.

I don't know the mathematical function for this distribution unfortunately. But can those packages plot ANY function? and will they plot every value or discrete values for equations with one variable?

Explain "any" in this context. With the packages I suggested in my earlier reply you can plot smooth functions with at least one variable. With the pgfplots package that Torbjorn suggested you can also plot three-dimensional functions. The same applies to pst-3dplot. For more information about the capabilities of those packages please consult their manuals. Feel free to ask further questions along with a presentation of a serious approach you did on your own.

By 'any' I mean complicated math expressions as well as simple functions and parametric curves too.
Some of the environments in ps-3dplot don't work when I insert the codes into TeXworks. But it works in TeXnicCenter. I would like to make it work in TeXworks thx
All applicable packages have been mentioned. Refer to their manuals to learn more about their capabilities.
Due to its built-in PDF viewer TeXworks only supports compiler engines that directly produce PDF output. But PSTricks does not work with e. g. PDFLaTeX directly [1]. So either include the auto-pst-pdf package or set the »pdf« option for the pstricks package. See the manual for details. You could also run XeLaTeX directly on PSTricks code.

So using XeTeX I can run pstricks and Tikz visually like Texworks? Btw.. how can I install XeTeX?
Xe(La)TeX is part of your TeX distribution.

The maxwell distribution function for kinetic energy vs. number of molecules is this right ? http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hb ... pe.html#c1 Under the category of "Velocity Distribution in One Dimension" ???
