    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution


    De – Broglie wavelength of ## O_2 ## molecule is ## \lambda = \frac h p ##

    Assuming that the speed of molecule is small enough to take non – relativistic calculation,

    ## \frac { p^2}{2m} = \frac { 3 k_B T }2 ##

    ## \lambda = 2.6 * 10^{-11}~ m ##

    So, the correct option is (a).
