The figure shows a hypothetical speed distribution for a sample of N gas particles (note that P(v) = 0 for speed v > 2v0).
(b) What is the value of vavg/v0?
vavg = int[vP(v)]dv
The Attempt at a Solution
The solutions manual says that, for the triangular portion of the distribution, P(v) = av/v0.
This may be a stupid question, but how does one get that?
(only need help with that portion of the problem for now)
