Unformatted text preview: we have encountered so far. It is customary to express the integral in terms of a new function call the error function, which is defined by ∫= z x dx e z erf 2 1 2 2 ) ( Values of the error function are listed in some texts and on the internet.

The distribution of speed for a gas in two dimensions is given by dv ve kt m dv v F kT mv 2 / 2 ) (= Using this expression derive formulas for <v> and ,<v 2 > for a two dimensional gas. 6. What is the most probably kinetic energy for a molecule in the gas phase?...
