4.19 7th edition

Postby paytonm1H » Sat Feb 09, 2019 10:26 pm

4.19 asks for the molar kinetic energy of Kr(g) at two temps 1.0C apart, in which the difference is the molar heat capacity of Kr(g).

The solutions manual gives the average kinetic energy = (3/2)RT. Did we cover this in class? Where does this equation come from?

We did go over thus in class. The equation relies on the fact that the internal energy of gases depends on temperature and the fact that there are three translational directions by which the molecule can move.
