1) Calculate the average kinetic energy of the N2 molecules in a sample of N2 gas at 273 K and 546 K
2) Consider separate 1.0 L samples of He(g) and UF6(g), both at 1.00 atm and containing the same number of moles. What ratio of temperatures for the two samples would produce the same root mean square velocity?
