The molecular weight of carbon dioxide, CO2, is 44.00 amu, and the molecular weight of nitrous dioxide, NO2, is 46.01 amu, so NO2 diffuses________CO2.

    less than CO2 it is a little bit heavier than CO2 then moves slower at the same temperature. Assuming they both are in the same conditions and they have the same energy

    @MacKenzieRanee Hello, welcome to Open study... Well to answer this I need something which you may know, but to help me spot the answer together.. How much amount do u think CO2 and NO2 Diffuses ?

    Graham's law states that the rate of effusion or of diffusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molecular weight. Thus, if the molecular weight of one gas is four times that of another, it would diffuse through a porous plug or escape through a small pinhole in a vessel at half the rate of the other (heavier gases diffuse more slowly). A complete theoretical explanation of Graham's law was provided years later by the kinetic theory of gases. Graham's law provides a basis for separating isotopes by diffusion — a method that came to play a crucial role in the development of the atomic bomb.
