###### FREE Expert Solution

Root mean square velocity:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{v}}}_{\mathbf{a}\mathbf{v}\mathbf{g}}{\mathbf{=}}\sqrt{\frac{{{\mathbf{v}}_{\mathbf{1}}}^{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{+}{{\mathbf{v}}_{\mathbf{2}}}^{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{+}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{+}{{\mathbf{v}}_{\mathbf{N}}}^{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{N}}}}$
