Hi, I am struggling with a particular point on the derivation of the kinetic theory of gases. Between 5mins and 6mins 30seconds of the video below they discuss how to get a value for the average of the squared velocities of the molecules in the gas. The bit I don't get is why they divide by 'N' on BOTH sides of the equation (i.e. why he divides the force by N). At first I thought he did it to make sure he did it to both sides of the equation but then that doesn't make sense to me. If you add up all the squared velocities and divide through the total number of molecules then you get the average of the squared velocities. So instead of the force being equal to the squared velocity of a single particle it is equal to an average for them all which is fine. But then why would you go and divide the left side by N as well?
