Diffusion: the ability of gases to mix with each other.
Effusion: the ability of gas to travel through a tiny opening (so small that molecules can only pass one at a time).
We have to calculate the ratio of diffusion rates for CO and CO.
The atomic mass of C is 12.011 g/mol
The atomic mass of O is 16.000 g/mol
We can calculate the ratio of diffusion rates using the equation for Graham’s law of effusion
