Step 1

According to the Graham’s law, the rate of diffusion or effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molecular mass. The rate of diffusion of a given gas is a measure of the rate at which the two gases are mixed together while the rate of effusion can be defined as the measure of rate at which a given gas escapes through the pinhole into a vacuum.

Step 2

Under the same conditions of pressure and temperature,
