1. Compressibility and Expansion are the properties
of gas that are used to operate the ballast tanks
of the submarine. When water is pumped in, the
air in the tank is compressed. When water is
pumped out, the compressed air expands to fill
the empty tanks.
2. Compressed gases must be kept away from heat
sources and the containers must be handled with
care. Increased temperature would cause the gas
particles to move faster, and that would increase
the pressure inside the container. Damaging a gas
container could cause it to rupture or explode.

3. The compressibility of gases allows the gas
spring to absorb the shock of opening or closing
the hatchback.
4. At the same temperature, two gases will have
the same average kinetic energy. Their velocity
will vary in proportion to their respective
5. As the balloon rises, the pressure outside will
decrease, but the number of particles inside
stays the same. The particles will continue to hit
the side of the balloon pushing outwards. As
the balloon rises, the gas inside will expand,
filling all the space of the balloon.

6. In diffusion, a gas mixes gradually with another
gas in the container, until the particles are
evenly distributed. In effusion, a gas escapes
from a container though one or more small
openings in the container, or through a porous
7. Fastest  NH3, HF, CO, NO2, HI slowest
8. Answer: the molar mass of the unknown gas is
24.4 g/mol*
9. The molar mass of the unknown gas is 146 g/l
10.Curve 1 represents the gas with the greatest
mass. (the gas with the lowest rate should be
the one with the greatest mass.)

Question 8, complete answer
The effusion rate of an unknown gas is 43.0 mL/min. The effusion rate of
CO2 is 32.0 mL/min. What is the molar mass of the unknown gas?
= 43.0 mL/min
= 32.0 mL/min
To find:
MCO = 44.0 g/mol
= 24.4 g/mol
Answer: The molar
mass of the unknown
gas is about 24.4 g/mol
Step 1: find molar mass of CO2
MCO = 12.0 g/mol + 2(16.0 g/mol)
= 44.0 g/mol
