Problem 18P

If one vibration has 7.0 times the energy of a second, but their frequencies and masses are the same, what is the ratio of their amplitudes?

SolutionStep 1The equation for thermal energy, E = (3/2) Nk T Th B Where, N - number of atoms or molecules present in the system -23 kB Boltzmann constant = 1.38 × 10 J/K T - Temperature of the system Provided, T = 21 N = 2.2 × 10 atomsWe are asked to calculate the new temperature when 4.3 J of thermal energy is removed fromthe system.
