Problem: Calculate the root-mean-square velocity of CO at 286 K .

FREE Expert Solution

When calculating for root mean square speed (μrms), we will use the following equation:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{\mu }}}_{{\mathbf{rms}}}{\mathbf{=}}\sqrt{\frac{\mathbf{3}\mathbf{RT}}{\mathbf{M}}}}$

• Molar Mass of CO = 28 g/mol → M = 0.028 kg/mol
