Question

At what temperature(in celcius) will oxygen molecules have the same K.E as ozone molecules at 30oC

Open in App
Solution

Average kinetic energy =12mv2rms=12m(3RTm)2=32RT
So, average kinetic energy of the molecules is independent of the type of molecules as the equation does not contain any molecular weight term. So, at 30 both O2 and O3 have same kinetic energy.
