Trying to follow a Hall Effect Thruster design process given in this video: Hall Effect Thruster Design Video

In 25:59, there's a calculation in which the presenter takes discharge voltage and converts it to temperature. Once he gets temperature in Kelvin I see how he gets the temperature in electron Volts, but I don't see how he derives the temperature given discharge voltage. He says something about atom temperature, but that's all I can pick up from it.

  • $\begingroup$ This video is not meant to be a tutorial; it's a student presenting to a professor. I only watched for about five minutes, but the student does not really explain this at all, and doesn't seem to even answer the professor's questions when asked about this. $\endgroup$
