Unformatted text preview: gas is to fall to ½ its value in a vertical distance of 1m? (T=298K) What types of molecules have molecular weights of this magnitude? 5. Since Julius Caesar expired, his last exhalation has a volume of about 500 cm 3 . This expelled air was 1% in argon. Assume that T= 300 o K, and groundlevel P=1atm. Assume that the T and P are uniform over the earth’s surface and still have the same values. If Caesar’s argon atoms have all remained in the atmosphere and have been completely mixed throughout the atmosphere, how many inhalations, 500 cm 3 each, must we make in average to inhale one of Caesar’s argon atoms? (Watch for units!)...
