Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Piston question,i need to work out the time when no molecules are left in the gaseous system..

I have worked out the relative velocity..if i multiply that by the mean free path to get

the diffusion coefficient am i getting any closer to the answer?

I can work out the change in time using an equation involving collision frequency but i'm

guessing mean free path has to be involved somewhere..

This question had been bugging me for weeks!!

Regards.
