Thermal Behavior of Air
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Air is mostly composed of diatomic nitrogen, N2. Assume that we can model the gas as an oscillator with an effective spring constant of 2.3 x 103 N/m and and effective oscillating mass of half the atomic mass. For what temperatures should vibration contribute to the heat capacity of air?
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I am not sure what to do next.
