Problem: Which one of the following gases would deviate the least from ideal gas behavior?A) CO2 B) F2C) CH3ClD) Ne E) Kr

FREE Expert Solution

In this case, any molecule or compound having strong intermolecular forces will affect its “ideality”. The stronger the IMF, the more the deviation in the KMT

If the same IMF: stronger IMF = larger molar mass
