  1. Dec 29, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Estimate the velocity of thermal neutrons at 25 degrees celcius

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I attempted to use KE=0.5mv^2 but I realised that I didn't know the Kinetic energy
