1.2 Problem 2 What is the ratio of average kinetic energy of the two systems of Problem 1? < KE > Ar < KE > Kr = 1 We will show this the long way. < KE > Ar = Z 0 4 π m Ar 2 π k B T 3 / 2 1 2 m Ar ν 2 e ( - m Ar ν 2 / 2 k B T ) ν 2 = 1 2 m Ar ν 2 rms = 1 2 m Ar 3 k B T m Ar = 3 2 k B T < KE > Kr = Z 0 4 π m Kr 2 π k B T 3 / 2 1 2 m Kr ν 2 e ( - m Kr ν 2 / 2 k B T ) ν 2 = 1 2 m Kr ν 2 rms = 1 2 m Kr 3 k B T m Kr = 3 2 k B T Thus the ratio is 1 . For ideal gases, energy is a function of temperature. Note that the expression for the average kinetic energy we derived in this exercise is identically the result one would obtain from rigorous statistical mechanical treatment. The kinetic energy is related to the rms speed, not

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
