Homework Help: Temperature of ideal gas

  1. Sep 22, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    see attachment.
    I've asked this question before but no one replied. not sure what formula I should use.
    already tried lambda (max and med) = C*m*K but neither of them worked.
    I need some help with this pretty quick if anyone can, thanks.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think you should use the equipartition theorem.

    3/2 k x T= K

    (Where K is the kinetic energy and k is the boltzmann constant)

    That worked.
    Thanks for the quick reply!
