Need some help on how to solve the integration formula for Maxwell speed distribution, here is the procedure on

how to solve for the kinetic energy:

Not familiar with the error function yet, but the result for the kinetic energy integration is:

https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=d/du(erf(sqrt(u))-2/(sqrt(pi))*sqrt(u)*e^(-u))

How to go on about solving for the speed distribution is the topic for this problem.
