a) 0.26
b) 0.27
c) 0.28
d) 0.29

Explanation: Ammonia is a colorless gas and it boils at a pressure of one atmosphere. It is easily liquefied due to the strong hydrogen bonding. Its unit is cm2/s.

2. Which one is having the highest value of diffusivity?
a) Hydrogen
b) Oxygen
c) Water
d) Methanol

Explanation: Thermal diffusivity of hydrogen is 0.410 while that of oxygen, water and methanol are 0.206, 0.259 and .0159 respectively. Its unit is cm 2/s.

3. What is the value of diffusivity for hydrogen?
a) 0.210
b) 0.310
c) 0.410
d) 0.510

Explanation: It is highly flammable and will burn in air at a very wide range of concentrations. It reacts with every oxidizing agent. Its unit is cm 2/s.

4. Which one is having the lowest value of diffusivity?
a) Acetic acid
b) Oxygen
c) Benzene
d) Toluene

Explanation: Thermal diffusivity of toluene is 0.084 while that of acetic acid, oxygen and benzene are 0.133, 0.206 and 0.081 respectively. Its unit is cm 2/s.

5. What is the value of diffusivity for water?
a) 0.233
b) 0.256
c) 0.276
