Problem

Which one of the following gases would deviate the least from ideal gas behavior?

a. Ne

b. CH3Cl

c. Kr

d. CO2

e. F2

Solution

Recall that ideal gases are imaginary and don’t exist. However, The Kinetic-Molecular Theory tries to use data of real gases to predict how an ideal gas would behave if they existed.   

One of the theories mention in the KMT is that assumes that particles do not experience intermolecular forces. This means that a gaseous molecule has interaction with any other gases.
