    It is temperature in kelvin as temperature increases the motion of the atoms.

    Hint: using the equipartition theorem, the kinetic KE energy of a molecule as a pointlike particle is: \[\Large KE = \frac{3}{2}KT\] where K is the Boltzamnn's constant, and T is the absolute temperature

    a pointlike particle, means that we neglect any internal degree of freedom of that particle
