Question
The temperature near the center of the Sun is thought to be 15 million degrees Celsius ($1.5 \times 10^{7}\textrm{ }^\circ\textrm{C}$). Through what voltage must a singly charged ion be accelerated to have the same energy as the average kinetic energy of ions at this temperature?

$1.9 \times 10^3 \textrm{ V}$
