Question

2. Consider a mixture of 0.100 mol of nitrogen gas (N2) and 0.200 mol of argon gas (Ar) in a container of volume 5.00 L at a constant temperature. a)

(2 marks) Is the average kinetic energy of the N2 molecules greater than, less than, or the same as the argon? Briefly explain the reason for your choice. b) (2 marks) Is the partial pressure of the N2 gas greater than, less than, or the same as the argon? Briefly explain the reason for your choice. c) (2 marks) Is the root mean square velocity (urms) of the N2 molecules greater than, less than, or the same as the argon? Briefly explain the reason for your choice.
