  • question_answer What is the difference between total kinetic energy and translational kinetic energy? For what type of molecules, the two are equal?


                    Total kinetic energy is the sum of translational,  vibrational and rotational kinetic energies. The total kinetic energy is equal to the translational kinetic energy for monoatomic gases (He, Ne etc.) as they do not possess vibrational and rotational motion but have only translational motion.
