 Three closed vessels A, B and C are at the same
temperature T and contain gases which obey the
Maxwellian distribution of velcoities. Vessel A contains
only O2, B only N2 and C a mixture of equal quantities
of O2 and N2. If the average speed of O2 molecules in

vessel A is V1, that of the N2 molecules in vessel B is

V2, the average speed of the O2 molecules in vessel C
will be :
(A) (V1 + V2) / 2

(B) V1

(C) square root of left parenthesis V 1 V 2 right parenthesis end root

(D)square root of space 3 k T space divided by space M end root

Average speed of maxwellian distribution of velocities = begin mathsize 12px style square root of fraction numerator 8 k T over denominator pi m end fraction end root end style
since athe average speed depends only on temperature T and mass of molecule m, also vessel A and C have same temperature,
average speed of oxygen molecule in vessel C is v1
