### If temperature is related to average kinetic energy in an ideal gas, then does speeding up the gas container affect its temperature? [duplicate]

This question is related to the following textbook question: The temperature of an ideal gas is directly proportional to the average kinetic energy of its molecules. If a container of ideal gas is ...

### Do temperature and kinetic energy depend on overall motion? [duplicate]

Suppose I place a cylinder filled with ideal gas is placed on a train, which starts moving. Does the kinetic energy of the gas molecules increase? Will the temperature of the gas rise as a consequence?...

### Does temperature depend on velocity of observer [duplicate]

The kinetic theory of gases states that temperature is a function of the average kinetic energy of a gas particle. But for the sake of our experiment lets say we have system of 5 molecules each of ...

### What is the kinetic energy of a number of discrete particles and question related to Thermodynamics [duplicate]

If I have a Number of gas molecules in a container each having some velocity $v(i)$, what would be the $K.E$ of the gas? Will it be the sum of kinetic energies of the individual particles or will it ...

### Why am I not burned by a strong wind?

So I was thinking... If heat I feel is just lots of particles going wild and transferring their energy to other bodies, why am I not burned by the wind? When I thought about it more I figured out ...
