Step 1

Graham`s law of diffusion: the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of the molar mass of its particles.

Step 2

For two gasses: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseM2 Rate, Rate2 VM1 where: Rate, is the rate of effusion for the first gas. (volume or number of moles per unit time). Rate, is the rate of effusion for the second gas. M¡ is the molar mass of gas 1 M, is the molar mass of gas 2. fullscreen
Step 3

Given:

Time of effusion of Br2 gas = 48 minutes

Molar mass of Br2 = 159.808...
