Solution: WF6 is one of the heaviest known gases.How much slower is the root-mean-square speed of WF6 than He at 300 K?

Solution: WF6 is one of the heaviest known gases.How much slower is the root-mean-square speed of WF6 than He at 300 K?

Problem

WF6 is one of the heaviest known gases.

How much slower is the root-mean-square speed of WF6 than He at 300 K?

Solution

Concept: Root mean square velocity/speed.

Using the root mean square speed equation, find speed of the 2 gases separately, next find ratio of the two speeds.
