# Which of the following best represents the internal energy per mole of a noble gas?

$(A) \large\frac{3}{2}$$RT \quad (B) \large\frac{1}{2}$$RT \quad (C) \large\frac{2}{3}$$RT \quad (D) \large\frac{1}{3}$$RT$
Can you answer this question?

Answer: $\large\frac{3}{2}$$RT Noble gases are monoatomic. For monoatomic gases, pV = \large\frac{2}{3}$$ \text{Internal Energy}$
$\Rightarrow$ Internal Energy $U =\large\frac{3}{2}$$pV = \large\frac{3}{2}$$nRT$
