# Question: If the temperature of an ideal gas increases from 300

If the temperature of an ideal gas increases from 300 K to 600 K, what happens to the rms speed of the gas molecules?

## Relevant Questions

If the temperature of an ideal gas is raised from 25 °C to 100 °C, how much faster is the new rms speed of the gas molecules? For an average molecule of N2 gas at 10 °C, what are its (a) Translational kinetic energy, (b) Rotational kinetic energy, and (c) Total energy? Repeat for He gas at the same temperature. An ideal gas in a cylinder is at 20 oC and 2.0 atm. If it is heated so its rms speed increases by 20%, what is its new pressure? If someone says that a hot object contains more heat than a cold one, would you agree? Why? Initially at 20 oC, 0.50 kg of aluminum and 0.50 kg of iron are heated to 100 oC. (a) The aluminum gains (1) more heat than the iron, (2) the same amount of heat as the iron, (3) less heat than the iron. Why? (b) Calculate ...Post your question
