Question

An ideal gas is kept in a container of constant volume. The pressure of the gas is also kept constant. (a) If
the number of molecules in the gas is doubled, does the rms speed
increase, decrease, or stay the same? Explain. (b) If the initial rms
speed is 1300 m>s, what is the final rms speed?
