Please see the work below.

Work Step by Step

We know that a Maxwell speed distribution curve tells us the number of molecules moving at a specific speed. The peak of the curve shows the speed that the most molecules are traveling. The left of the peak shows the number of molecules having less than the average molecular energy, and the right peaks shows molecules having greater speed and greater molecular energy.
