## Homework Statement

In computing the average kinetic energy of a molecule obeying Maxwellian distribution one use the formula ½mc

^{2}.Calculate the percentage error incurred in the calculation.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Here c is the average velocity of a molecule obeying Maxwellian distribution which I can calculate which is √(8KT/πm), but I have no idea how to calculate the percentage error so no attempt has been made.

Thanks
