For which of the following gases should the correction for the molecular volume be largest: CO, CO2, H2, He, NH3, SF6?

Answer:

The answer will be NH3. As NH3 molecules are capable of forming Hydrogen Bonds, the interactions between the atoms are much higher. Hence, it violates the basic assumption which the ideal gas’s equation of state is dependent upon.
