Temperature of a gas (in kelvin) is proportional to the average kinetic temperature of its particles.
Question: The temperature of 55k (277C) to 1100k(827C). At 277C the mean kinetic energy of the gas is 1.14x10^20. What is it at 827C?
kinetic energy= ½ x mass x (velocity)²
The Attempt at a Solution
55k to 1100k is x20. 1.14x10^20 x20=2.28x10^21.
Just want to check this is correct as I have an exam tormorrow.
