**Question 1**

A container holds 10.89 grams Oxygen molecules at 350.3 degrees K. What is the internal (translational kinetic) energy of the gas (see sheet 15,23 and consider that the Oxygen molecule has 2 atoms)? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether the internal energy is less (greater) than the average kinetic energy of the molecules.

__Answer:__-1485.970

__How to solve:__

**Question 2**

What is the average (translational) kinetic energy of the atoms contained in 1.895 moles of helium at 29.52 degrees C (see sheet 15,24) Indicate with a negative (positive) sign wheather the universal Boltzmann constant k is (is not) the ratio of the universal gas constant R and Avogadro's universal number Na?

__Answer:__-6.26526

__How to solve:__

**Question 3**

Calculate the root-mean-square (rms) velocity of Oxygen molecules at 65.95 degrees C (see sheet 24). Indicate with a negative (positive) sign whether all molecules have this velocity (this value is an average for the molecules present).

__Answer:__513.9102

__How to solve:__

**Question 4**

What is the ratio of the average kinetic energy of Helium atoms over the average kinetic energy of Neon atoms both at 347.7 oK (see sheet 24) ? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether the corresponding ratio of the rms velocities is the same (not the same).

__Answer:__-1

## question 2

average kinetic energy = (3/2)kT

k= 1.38e^-23

T= 29.52+273.15 = 302.67

avg KE = (3/2)*1.38e^-23*302.67

= 6.265269e^-21

ans: -6.265269e^-21

k= 1.38e^-23

T= 29.52+273.15 = 302.67

avg KE = (3/2)*1.38e^-23*302.67

= 6.265269e^-21

ans: -6.265269e^-21

## question 4

temperature is proportional to the average kinetic energy so:

347.7/347.7 = 1

ans is -1

347.7/347.7 = 1

ans is -1

## question 1

formula U=(3/2)nRT

first convert the grams given to moles

grams of substance/moles of substance =molar mass of substance/1 mole

10.89g/x=16*2/1

n= 10.89/32= .3403125

U= (3/2)*.3403125*8.31*350.3

U= -1485.971

## question 3

v_rms= sqrt((2*KE_avg)/m)

KE_avg = (3/2)KT

T= 65.95 +273.15= 339.1

m= (16*2)*1.66e^-27

v_rms= sqrt((2*(3/2)*1.38e^-23*339.1)/(32*1.66e^-27))

=514

KE_avg = (3/2)KT

T= 65.95 +273.15= 339.1

m= (16*2)*1.66e^-27

v_rms= sqrt((2*(3/2)*1.38e^-23*339.1)/(32*1.66e^-27))

=514

## Re: Ch 12.3 help

aren't we suppose to do something with the moles that was given and where did 1.38e^-23 come from?

## Re: Ch 12.3 help

yo yo yo for number two i did the exact same formula but they keeps saying im wrong so whats with that... anyone have similar problem?

I did

(3/2)kT

Where k is boltzmanns constant, T is temp in kelvins and (3/2) is a number. Help me out please... and ill post up a really funny joke or something...

## Re: Ch 12.3 help

I did

*#2*as per above and got it correct. How did you proceed with the question? Try first finding**(3/2)**and multiplying that answer across.**Guest01**- Posts : 133

## Re: Ch 12.3 help

You might be getting #2 wrong because of how you are entering the answer into Maple TA. For example, instead of putting in "-6.265269e^-21" from the post above, try writing out the whole number... ".000000000000000000006265269" along with the negative. The formula "(3/2)*k*T" is correct.

## Re: Ch 12.3 help

i keep getting # 2 wrong. i did (3/2)KT ..my answer was -6.43456 but it did not work.

**hello**- Guest

## Re: Ch 12.3 help

My answer was to four decimal places and i used

**E-XX**instead of all those zeroes**Guest01**- Posts : 133

If you use

**E**then don't use the carrot (**^**). That may be messing up the answer.**Guest01**- Posts : 133
