# Problem: An ideal gas is at 50°C. If we triple the average kinetic energy of the gas atoms, what is the new temperature in °C?

###### FREE Expert Solution

The average kinetic energy of molecules is expressed as:

$\overline{){\mathbf{E}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{3}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{\left(}}\frac{\mathbf{R}\mathbf{T}}{{\mathbf{N}}_{\mathbf{A}}}{\mathbf{\right)}}}$
