==Application to thermodynamics== This equation is known as Graham`s law of effusion. The effusion rate for a gas depends directly on the average velocity of its particles. Thus, the faster the gas particles are moving, the more likely they are to pass through the effusion orifice. A figure of Graham`s law of effusion linked below shows the rate.....
