Textbook Problem

Figure CQ10.9 shows Maxwell speed distributions for three different samples of oxygen (O2) gas. (a) Is the temperature of sample B greater than, less than, or equal to the temperature of sample A? (b) Is the temperature of sample C greater than, less than, or equal to the temperature of sample A?

(a)

To determine
The temperature of sample B.

Explanation

The relation between temperature and rms speed is,

T=Mvrms23R

  • M is the molar mass.
  • R is the gas constant.
  • T is the temperature

(b)

To determine
The temperature of sample C.
