    Plot the Maxwell distributions for CO2, N2, and He at 298K in the velocity range of 0 to 2500 m/s. Label each curve appropriately.
    What temp. would you have to change the CO2 to cause it to have the same mean velocity as the He at 298K?
    What fraction of the N2 molecules are in the velocity range 500 to 1000 m/s?
    What is the mean free path of He at 298K?
