In many text books used for undergraduate courses, equipartition theorem (EPT) is defined only for quadratic Hamiltonian. In this article we apply the EPT for many non linear (non quadratic) Hamiltonian, which will help the students to have a more understanding on EPT. We also give some applications of Tolman's definition of EPT
