Textbook Problem

Two gases in a mixture pass through a filler at rates proportional to the gases’ rms speeds. (a) Find the ratio of speeds for the two isotopes of chlorine, 35Cl and 37Cl, as they pass through the air. (b) Which isotope moves faster?

(a)

To determine
The ratio of speeds of the isotopes.

Explanation

Given Info: Molar masses of chlorine isotopes are 35 g/mol and 37g/mol.

The relation between rms speed and molar mass (M) at constant temperature is,

vrms1M

Therefore,

vrms1vrms2=M2M1

  • vrms1 and vrms2 are the rms speeds of the two isotopes

(b)

To determine
Which isotope moves faster.
