• rate of effusion measures rate at which the gas is transferred into the chamber • Graham’s law of effusion: • from kinetic theory: 2 1 M rate of effusion for gas 1 rate of effusion for gas 2 M = avg 11 avg 22 u for gas 1 8R T MM rate of effusion for gas 1 rate of effusion for gas 2 u for gas 2 8R T p = == p

– Diffusion of gases: • ability of a gas to mix spontaneously with another gas • rate of diffusion is the rate of mixing of gases NH 3(g) + HCl (g) NH 4 Cl (s) • diffusion is slow even though: molecular speeds (NH 3 ) = 660 m/s molecular speeds (HCl) = 450 m/s • observed ratio is 1.3 • ratio is different due to collisions with N 2 and O 2 3 av g3 3 HCl av g NH u (N H) distance traveled by N HM 36.5 1.5 distance traveled by HC l u (HCl ) M 17 = = ==
