Which gas, CO or N2 is expected to behave more ideally at 10 atm and −50°C?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Among the given gases which one behaves ideally at given temperature and pressure conditions that is at 10 atmand -50oC should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Intramolecular force: The force of attraction that exists between bonds with in molecule. Than the ionic bond between two ions are formed from the transfer of electrons to another atom.

Van der Waals' forces: This is electrostatic attraction between temporary dipoles and induced dipoles caused by moments of electrons in atoms and molecules.

Ideal gas: The pressure (P), volume (V) number of moles of gas (n) and temperature (T), than the constant of equation shown is (R) known as the gas constant, this relationship between the them may be deduce from kinetic theory and is called the number of moles and (R) gas constant.

To identify: The gas that is more ideal among the given two gases.

Explanation

First understand the gas phase (CO and N2) molecule property.

CO andN21).COis a stronger intermolecular force2). N2is a weaker intermolecular forceC=O-----C=O-------C=O---[Each oxygen sharing of electrons another atoms]
