A theoretical model of sympathetic cooling in an rf trap without using any fitting parameters was constructed. This model was generally applicable to estimating the limiting temperature of sympathetically cooled ions in an rf trap. The relationship between the temperatures of the host ions and the guest ions and its dependence on the trapping voltage were calculated. it was found that the trapping voltage does not effect the temperature relation between the host ions and the guest ions.
