- Homework Statement
- Consider a system with a large number of non interacting particles at temperature T. Each particle has energy given by E = ax^6 associated with the degree of freedom x. Evaluate the mean energy per particle associated with this degree of freedom.

- Relevant Equations
- E = 3/2 kT

I've learned that for a particle having 3 degrees of freedom, its average energy is 3/2 kT.

So for a particle having 'x' degrees of freedom, its energy should be xkT/2.

So what is the use of given E = ax

Please help!
