Welcome to the forum! What thoughts have you had about this problem? Is it part of something you've been doing recently at school etc? Are there any parts you remember from those lessons that may be useful here?

I'm taking an online course, so it's all self teaching... (it can get a little confusing at times) so i have to find most of the information myself, and this one just doesn't seem to be the same anywhere (or understandable).
i know that equilibrium is a state of rest or balance due to the equal action of opposing forces, but have no idea how to calculate the temperature...
thanks
