Problem: A sample of gaseous neon atoms at atmospheric pressure and 0 oC contains 2.69 x 1022 atoms per liter. The atomic radius of neon is 69 pm. What does this reveal about the separation between atoms in the gaseous phase?A. This says that the separation between atoms is very small in the gas phase.B. This says that the separation between atoms is very large in the gas phase.C. This says that the separation between atoms is comparable to their atomic size in the gas phase.D. This doesn't reveal anything about the separation between atoms in the gas phase.
