The problem I'm working on is verbatim as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"A sealed cubical container 20.0 cm on a side contains three times Avogadro's number of molecules at a temperature of 20.0 degrees Celsius. Find the force exerted by the gas on one of the walls of the container."

So, I would assume that I need to use the formula F = N/3([m * (v^{2} ]/d) , but I'm not seeing the big picture.

Maybe this is a simple problem and I just can't see the forest for the trees, but for some reason, I'm at a loss.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

-A. Martin
