(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have a sealed container of volume v = x m^3, which holds a sample of y x 10^24 atoms of He gas in equilibrium.

The distribution of speeds of the atoms is peaking at 110 m s^-1.

How do I calculate the temperature and pressure of the He gas?

Which equations would I use to calculate the average kinetic energy of the atoms?

2. Relevant equations

I don't know where to start.

3. The attempt at a solution

This is what I need help with.
