Problem 56

During World War II, physicists developed methods toseparate the uranium-235 and -238 isotopes. Onemethod involved converting the uranium metal to agas, UF6, and then allowing the gas to diffuse througha porous barrier, with the lighter gas diffusing faster.What is the difference in the speeds of the two UF6 gasspecies at room temperature?
