What is the average kinetic energy of a molecule of oxygen at a temperature of 300. K?

To determine
The average kinetic energy.

Explanation

Given Info: The temperature is 300 K.

Formula to calculate the average kinetic energy is,

Ek=32kT

  • k is the Boltzmann constant
  • T is the temperature

Substitute 300 K for T and 1.38×1023JK1 for k in the above equation to get Ek .

Ek=32(1
