Average Kinetic Engery

  1. Nov 13, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Average Kinetic Energy of the ideal gas molecules inside a container, which is kept at temperature T, depends on __________________.

    a) the mass of the molecules
    b) the volume of hte molecule
    c)the density of the molecule
    d)the temperature T of the container

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I would choose D. The only thing that I can find relates to temperature, my professor didn't cover this section very well and I'm not positive about my answer. Thank you very much!!!

    You're right. Temperature is a measure of kinetic energy...
