A friend says that the molecules in a mixture of gas in thermal equilibrium have the same average kinetic energy. Do you agree or disagree? Explain.
Answer: Step 1: The Average kinetic energy of the of the system in thermal equilibrium remains the same or constant Step 2: Thermal Equilibrium means “ No exchange of heat from the system to the surrounding or from surrounding to the system” therefore no change in tempreature that is no change in average kinetic energy.
