not sure if this belongs here, sorry.
but when is "Ideal gas, U = 3/2 nRT" true? is there an iso-something condition to this statement? in what kind of question would I use this?

I believe this has to do with molecular shape/structure. Don't worry about it for the midterm, you will be given molar heat capacities.
