The

**mean**kinetic**energy**of a molecule is thus independent of the size of thecontainer and simply proportional to the absolute temperature T of the gas. If the

molecules of the gas are not monatomic, the additive expression (69) yields for

5.3 Work, Internal Energy, and Heat The concepts of heat and work were

introduced in Sec. 3.7. The discussion there was summarized by the basic

relation (3.53), AE = W + Q, (13) which connects the increase in the

E of any ...

We recall from mechanics that the

**energy**of a system (in particular, its potential**energy**) is always undefined to within an arbitrary constant. The same remarkapplies, of course, to the

**mean**internal**energy**E of a macroscopic system. Thevalue ...
