Here's the Question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In a Classroom there are 50 rows of students. A container of N20 (laughing gas) was opened at the front row and tear gas (molar mass 240 gm/mole) was opened simultaneously at the rear of the room. Which row of students will be the first to be laughing with tears in their eyes? mm(N)=14 & mm(O)=16

I thought I could solve it by using KE=3/2 KT and then after finding out the kinetic energy... substitute and solve for Velocity in KE=1/2 mv²

However.. in the problem it doesn't say anything about the temperature in the room so I dont know if i should assume that it's room temperature or if there's another way to solve this... Any help is appreciated.
