The average kinetic energy of a molecule in a gas depends only on the temperature, not on the molecule’s mass, so the average kinetic energy is the same for the molecules of each element. b) Equation (18.19) shows that for constant temperature, the rms speed is proportional to the inverse square root of the mass, and so rms Kr rms Rn rms Ne rms Ne 20.18 20.18 0.491, 0.301 and 83.80 222.00 v v v v = = = = rms Rn rms Kr 83.80 0.614. 222.00 v v = = 18.37 [Oxygen Molecules] a) .
