Normalizing molecular speed probabiliy distribution

  1. Apr 19, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show that the molecular speed probability distribution is normalized

    2. Relevant equations
    Molecular speed probability distribution
    P(C)dC = 4pi[m/2pikt]3/2exp[-mC2/2kT]C2dC

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have tried many steps but i keep getting stuck. I tried using the same metods that i used to use to normalize wave funcations and that was <psi|psi>=1 but i am not getting anywhere, can some one please point me in right deirection.
