Problem: Consider the following gases, all at STP: Ne, SF6, N2, CH4.Which one would effuse more rapidly than N2?

FREE Expert Solution

 We are asked which one would effuse more rapidly than N2.

The average speed is inversely proportional to the molar mass of gas: a larger molar mass results in a lower average speed.
