Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello:smile:
suppose we have a gas (ideal) inside that gas there are particles ([tex]N[/tex]
particles) and each particle has a certain velocity [tex]v[/tex].
i want to find the average velocity of all the particles inside that gas.
would it be [tex]\mathbb{V}=\frac{\sum_{1}^{n}v_i}{N}[/tex]
[tex]\mathbb{V}[/tex] the average velocity.
thanks.

Wouldn't the upper limit on the sum also be N?
