1. Homework Statement [/b]
Calculate the function for N2 at 300k
d(vx)= (m/2pikT)^1/2 exp((mv^2/2kT)
I have to be able to use this equation for varying velocity from 1500 m/s to 1500 m/s
Boltzmann constant = 1.3806503 × 1023 m2 kg s2 K1
N2 mass= 0.0280 kg
So im plugging these 2 values in the equation, but i keep getting 0 when i do the exp(mv^2/2kt part). e to the power of such a high number gives me 0 and that high number comes from my denominator being such as small value, so Im no sure what to do.
I have uploaded question formula picture incase its not clear.
