Probability of the Speed of a Molecule in a Group of Traveling Molecules

In a group of molecules all traveling in the positive z direction, what is the probability that a molecule will be found with a z-component speed between 400 and 401 m/s if m/(2kT ) = 5.62 × 10−6 s2 /m2 ? (Hint: You need to find and normalize a one-dimensional distribution function first!)
According to the Boltzmann distribution law, the probability of finding a molecule with an energy εz in this group of molecules, is proportional to,
