    My guess would be H2 because they have simple spherical orbital shapes.

    Because a large molecule will have a high value of 'b' as it takes up more space. A large molecule will also have more interaction between it and other molecules (Van der Waals forces increase with molecular size generally) For example if u compare CH4, C2H6, or C3H8..C3H8 will have large value of "b"
