Boltzmann's constant/Maxwell-Boltzmann dist. of molecular speed help

  1. Dec 20, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Calculate the Vrms for U235F6 at 375 degrees C. What % of the molecules have Vrms>500 m/s?

    I'm not entirely sure on what direction to go in, sadly I missed the day he covered making these graphs and doing these types of problems. I do have all the formulas though.....but again I'm not sure on how to use them. Any help would be much appreciated, Thank you.

    P.s.- I talked to the teacher and he said it would have kg and joules as it's units, that's why I put the MM of U235F6 in kg, hopefully I'm right. Haha. Thanks again.


    2. The attempt at a solution

    3(.08206)(648) <------all this is under a square root
    .348988

Can you help with the solution or looking for help too?
