If c is r.m.s. sp

Answer :

From kinetic theory of gases, the rms speed of molecules of a gas is given by,


where P is the pressure of the gas and ρ is the density. From ideal gas law



Where R is the universal gas constant, T is temperature and M is the molecular mass of the gas.



The speed of sound on the other hand is given by



where γ is the ratio of specific heat at constant pressure to specific heat at constant volume for air, R is the universal gas constant, T is temperature and M is the molecular mass of the gas.


Therefore



For a diatomic gas γ = 1.4, and hence



And is independent of temperature.
