**drwls**, Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 7:53amUse the definition of kinetic energy and solve for V.

K.E. = (1/2) M V^2

You'd better correct your mass M of the argon atom before you do the calculation. You left out an exponent.

I suspect your kinetic energy exponent has a minus sign left out. Otherwise you would have to have a velocity close to the speed of light.
