Spectroscopic Conundrums

Ok, so I need to use line width to determine apparent average energy per particle. That means I can determine the average speed per particle. I need to know average speed per particle to calculate the doppler broadening of the line, which changes the line width. That changes the apparent average energy per particle…

I feel like I’m trapped in some kind of mathematical Tolkenian riddle!
