Question

At a certain temperature, the speed of six gaseous molecules in a container are 2.0 m/s, 2.2 m/s, 2.6 m/s, 2.7 m/s, 3.3 m/s, and 3.5 m/s. Calculate the root-mean-square speed and average speed of the molecules. These two average values are to each other, but the root-mean-square value is always the larger of the two. Why?
