Problem

In a sample of gas, you pick a particle at random. The mass of the particle is 1.67 × 10^{-27} kg and you measure its speed to be 1600 m/s. If that particle’s kinetic energy is equal to the average kinetic energy of the gas particles, what is the temperature of the sample of gas?

A

232 K

B

0.065 K

C

103.3 K

D
