Temperature of the helium atom, THe = –20°C= 253 K

Atomic mass of argon, MAr = 39.9 u

Atomic mass of helium, MHe = 4.0 u

Let, (vrms)Arbe the rms speed of argon.

Let (vrms)Hebe the rms speed of helium.

The rms speed of argon is given by: … (i)

Where,

R is the universal gas constant

TAr is temperature of argon gas

The rms speed of helium is given by: … (ii)

It is given that:

(vrms)Ar = (vrms)He = 2523.675 = 2.52 × 103 K

Therefore, the temperature of the argon atom is 2.52 × 103 K.
