Heavy Ion Collisions performed in the LHC at Cern are capable of generating a new phase of nuclear matter known as the Quark Gluon Plasma. In addition to running heavy ion collisions, the detectors dedicated to studying the QGP perform collisions utilizing smaller collision systems for the sake of comparing key measurements associated with the creation of a QGP. The transverse energy of the particles generated from the collision is one such key measurement. For the sake of comparison an analysis is performed on the transverse energy measurements taken from proton-proton collisions.
