I am a little confused as to when we would utilize this equation. It is present on the constants and equations sheet as calculating U for an ideal gas. I remember using it in 8.103, with the problem involving calculations of molar kinetic energy in j/mol for krypton at 55.85 degrees and 54.85 degrees, is this the only application of it we would see? (Calculating molar kinetic energy)
As stated above, I don't think we will use this equation too often for this class, but it is present on the equation sheet, because you can get some useful information. From the relationship the equation describes, you can see that U, which is internal energy depends solely on T, which is temperature because n and R are constants.
