Equipartition of energy states that each degree of freedom contributes an amount of K to each molecule equal to (1/2)(k_b)T. I wrote: K = (D/2)(k_b) T, where D is the number of degrees of freedom. Is this correct? Because if it is, then does it mean that K is proportional to both D and T? In other words, for two cases where Temperature is the same, the value of D dictates its temperature. Thank you. //edit Well actually, I'm more concerned with the fact that according to that equation, two objects can have the same temperature and yet, a different K value; because of a different D. Lemme know if you don't understand; I'll try rewording.
