We are asked to predict qualitatively how this change affects the average kinetic energy of the molecules.
The average kinetic energy is directly proportional to temperature.
The temperature of a 5.00-L container of N2 gas is increased from 20 °C to 250 °C. If the volume is held constant, predict qualitatively how this change affects the following:
(a) the average kinetic energy of the molecules
