A cylinder contains a mixture of helium and argon gas in equilibrium at a temperature of 152 degrees Celsius.
a) What is the average kinetic energy of each type of molecule (J/molecule)?
b) What is the rms speed of each type of molecule? (m/s)
152 C = 425 K (since K = C + 273).
<br>The average kinetic energy for each of the molecules (they are equal since both are monatomic ...
This solution looks at the kinetic energy and rms speed of gas molecules.
