## Homework Statement

Use the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution of speeds to find the fraction of F

_{2}molecules at 500 K which have speeds in the range 240 to 250 m s

^{ -1}

(HINT: determine the fraction of the total area under the distribution curve represented by the part between these two speeds. Assume that the distribution curve is linear over this small range)

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I'm guessing I want to integrate this equation between 240 and 250 m s

^{-1}

So it simplifies to ∫v

^{2}e

^{-mv2/2KT}dv

I'm not very good at integrating so I genuinely have no idea what happens after that
