Unformatted text preview: among Variables that Affect Gases lab 1.)Evaluating the Scale: a. The simulation is slowed down from that of real time. The average speed of the atoms is 3,200 m/s. b. The picture of this real time image would be a blur because the atoms in the simulation would be moving to quickly to be able to see. c. The atomic scale is equivalent to 0.1nm or 1X 10E-10m. The atoms shown in the simulation were about 1 nm using the scale provided by the computer program. d. No the atoms are not sized to scale they are about 10 times the size ot the atomic scale. e. Nothing inhabits the space between the atoms. 2.)Following the bouncing atom a. The blue atom moved freely throughout the container but when it hits another atom, it is either forced to speed up or slow down depending on the angle that it strikes. b. instantaneous speed is the different speeds of all the atoms at that present instant, while average speed is the different speeds averaged over the elapsed time. c. The blue atoms instantaneous graph changes while it is jostled around the other atoms, its average speed graph also fluctuates, but not as much as its instantaneous....
