Ok there is a mixture of hydrogen and chlorine molecules in a container.

I need to compare a)the temperature of each gas, and b)the average kinetic energy of the molecules

without doing any calculations.


a) I'm not sure I should answer with T=PV/nR for each one or whether i should just assume that the temperature is the same for both since they are in the same container.

b) from my physics course, I believe this is just Ek = .5mv^2
but I'm not sure how to compare, since I dont know the velocity of the molecules?


any ideas?

also is it ok to post chemistry problems on this board? :shy:

There is a place in other science right under engineering but
If you need a better chemistry site go her and go to beginners for your question
