    Q1
    R is the resistance at 1730℃
    P=U²/R = >
    R=U²/P = 12²/36= 4 Ohms
    ΔR/R₀=αΔ T
    (R-R₀)/R₀=αΔ T
    Δ T=T-T₀=1730-0 =1730
    R- R₀=R₀•α•Δ T
    R₀=R/(1+ α•Δ T) = 0.351 Ohms
    R₁ ia the resistance at 20℃
    R₁=R₀{1+ αΔT₁} = 0.351•{1+0.006•20} = 0.393 Ohms

    Q2
    v = sqrt{3RT/M} =>
    T= v²M/3R = 640²•32•10⁻³/3•8.31 = 525.7 K
    T(℃) =525.7 – 273.15 = 252.55 ℃

    Q3
    E=ikT/2 =3kT/2 = 3•1.38•10⁻²³•300/2 =6.21•10⁻²¹ J
