On a cold day, you take a breath, inhaling 0.50 L of air whose initial temperature
is −10°C. In your lungs, its temperature is raised to 37°C. Assume that the
pressure is 101 kPa and that the air may be treated as an ideal gas. What is the
total change in translational kinetic energy of the air you inhaled?
