# A Collision Problem

Chemistry Level 4

The above table gives data about three Ideal gas samples taken in separate equal volume containers.

• Calculate the ratio of collision frequencies ( $$Z_{11}$$ ) (in the form of A:B:C) for the three gases. Let the ratio be $$j:k:l.$$

• Calculate the number of collision by one molecule per second ( $$Z_{1}$$ ). Let the ratio be $$m:n:o.$$

Report the answer as $\frac{m}{j} + \frac{k}{n} + \frac{l}{o}.$

For those who don't know:

• $$Z_{11}$$ is the total number of Bimolecular collisions per unit volume per unit time.

• $$Z_1$$ is the number of collisions made by a single molecule with other molecules per unit time.
