Fractions of Molecules in an Ideal Gas with Speeds Less than Various Multiples of v/v_{\rm rms} in the textbook. The molar mass of {\rm{N}}_2 is 28.0 {\rm{ g/mol}}.

For a gas of nitrogen molecules {{\rm{N}}_2 } , what must the temperature be if 94.7\% of all the molecules have speeds less than 1500 \rm m/s?

2. Relevant equations

Vrms = sqrt(3kt/m)

3. The attempt at a solution

Really don't know where to start with the percentages and the relevance of the fracitons of molecules in an ideal gas with speeds less than various multiples etc??

Any help?
