    [PChem] Maxwell-Boltzmann Molecule Mean Speed

    Thanks for following up :). Yes, I was confused at where the integral c=∫vf(v)dv was coming from (I don't like using random equations which I don't know where they came from) but I figured out it was pretty much just a definition.

    [PChem] Maxwell-Boltzmann Molecule Mean Speed

    Yes sorry, I see that my wording was ambiguous. I am having trouble seeing why integrating v*f(v) gives you an average.

    [PChem] Maxwell-Boltzmann Molecule Mean Speed

    Hi, I am having trouble with this concept... "A mean speed (c) is calculated by multiplying each speed by the fraction of molecules that have that speed, and then adding all the products together. When the speed varies over a continuous range, the sum is replaced by an integral. To employ...
