Question #122318

using the equipartition of energy concept estimate the ideal gas Cp(not Cv) in units KB for the low temperature regime where no vibrational modes are activated(if you calculate Cp=42KB, enter 42 as your answer )

Expert's answer

As per equipartition theorem,

The energy of a thermodynamic system in equilibrium is partitioned equally among its degrees of freedom and molar heat capcity is given as

and we know that

where d is the degree of freedom, for ideal gas d=3

Now,

, we know that

R=NK_{B},

so u need to write 15
