Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Physics 60 9/28/2015 Week 1 Ch. 1.3 Equipartition of Energy o Equipartition theorem: At temperature T, the average energy of any quadratic degree of freedom is (1/2)kT - The equipartition theorem concerns all forms of energy that has formula as a quadratic function of a coordinate or velocity - Degrees of freedom f refer to the forms of energy that constrain how energy moves (such as translational motion, rotational motion, vibrational motion, and elastic potential energy) - Total thermal energy: U thermalN*f*(1/2)kT - Safest to apply equipartition theorem to changes in energy due to changes in temperature that do not break bonds between parti
