Problem

Which of the following gases would you expect to deviate most from ideal behavior under conditions of low temperature: F2, Cl2, Br2?

Solution

We are asked which of the following molecule will deviate from the ideal behavior under low conditions, F2, Cl2 or Br2.


The Ideal gas law is a convenient approximation for predicting the behavior of gases at low pressures and high temperatures. 

This law assumes that the gas molecules solely interact with their neighbors through perfectly elastic collisions and that particles exert no intermolecular forces among each other.
