Two identical tubes, A and B, held horizontally contain air and water respectively. A small quantity of coloured water is introduced at one end of A while at the same time, a small quantity of coloured water is introduced at one end of B. State with reasons the tube in which the colour will reach the other end faster.
Tube A. Diffusion is faster in gases due to low density and low cohesive forces hence higher kinetic energy
Tube A. Rate of diffusion is faster in gases compared to liquids. because the particles in gases are much far apart increasing the rate of diffusion
Tube A. The colored water will diffuse faster in gas than in water since gases have molecules held by weaker forces of attraction and larger intermolecular distance than in liquids. The rate of diffusion is therefore higher due
