(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given a particle of mass m in box of length L, how would you find the frequency of collisions on a given wall and the momentum of each collisions?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Should I start with the equation for the root-mean-square-velocity? How can one derive the freqeuncy of collisions from that?
