**Elena**, Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 5:33pmSTP - Standard Temperature and Pressure - is 273 and 105 Pa

Maxwell distribution for the relative velocities is

ΔN/N = 4/sqrt(π)•(1/e^(u^2))•u^2•Δu,

v1 = 200m/s, v2 =202 m/s, Δv =202-200 = 2m/s.

The most probable velocity

v(pr) = sqrt(2RT/M) = sqrt(2•8.31•273/20•10^-3) = 476.3 m/s.

The relative velocity is

u = v1/v(pr) = 200/476.3 = 0.42,

u^2 = 0.176,

1/e^(u^2)) = 0.838

Δu = Δv/v(pr) = 2/476.3 = 4.2•10^-3.

ΔN/N = 4/sqrt(π)•0.838•0.176•4.2•10^-3 =1.4•10^-3 = 0.0014.

Therefore. 1,4% of the neon atoms have the velocities of 200 – 202 m/s or their absolute number in 1 mole is

ΔN = N•0.0014 = 6.022•10^23•0.0014 = 8.42•10^20

**Erica**, Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 11:20pmThis looked a little sloppy imo... Here's my example

1. Find most probably velocity of Krypton

v = √[(2*8.314J/K*273K)/(0.083798 kg)] = 237.75 m/s

Find the ratio of each velocity

205/237.75 = .8808 The average is .8851

207/237.75 = .8894

Find the ratio of change in velocities 207-205

2/237.75 = 0.008593

Then: Find the probability!

6.022e23 molecules * 5 mol * .8851 * 0.008593 = 2.29e22

I just did a problem like this... These are my numbers, but the work is a lot more simple
