Your friend states that the average speed of all hydrogen and nitrogen molecules in a gas is the same. Do you agree or disagree, and why?
Solution 21E Step 1 of 2: Disagree, The average kinetic energy of the atoms in a mixed gas at same temperature will be equal(from gas laws). KE= mv 2 2 Where KE is the kinetic energy, m is the mass of atom and v is the speed of atom. Since for hydrogen and nitrogen in a mixture with same temperature, KE = KE n h
