(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An empty room in a house near the Atlantic coast has a volume of 45m^{3}. What is the kinetic energy of all of the gas molecules in the room on a 30C summer day?

2. Relevant equations

pv = nrt

3. The attempt at a solution

I realize that this is an ideal gas law problem, but I have no idea where to start. How can I solve for anything if I'm only given volume and temperature?
