Calculate the values of root-mean-square speed, most probable speed, and the average speed for argon at 298 K.


Calculate the values of root-mean-square speed, most probable speed, and the average speed for argon at 298 K.

Step 1


The formula of the root-mean-squared velocity is given in figure where


Vrms = the root-mean-squared velocity = ?

R = the gas constant = 8.314 J/(mol·K)

T = the temperature of the gas = 298 K

M = the molar mass of the gas = 39.95 g/mole

Step 2

Convert the molar mass from g/mole to kg/mole

Step 3

Calculate the Vrms  by  putting the value...
