What is Einstein Temperature and how can i use it in this question?

  1. Oct 26, 2004 #1
    At waht temp will the heat capactiy at constant volume of a substance achieve one third of its classical value of 3R? Express in terms of Einstein temperature Te.

    3R = 24.9 J/ mol K

    R = 8.314 J / mol K = [tex] 3R (\frac{Te}{T})^2 \frac{e^\frac{Te}{T}}{e^\frac{Te}{T} - 1} [/tex]

    But i dont know waht the Te for a subtance is though? Te = H nu / k

    i dont know Nu though....

    This question has nothing to do with special or general relativity - it is a problem in statistical mechanics. Try either the classical physics forum, or homework help.
