# Problem: As discussed in the “Chemistry Put to Work” box in Section 10.8 in the textbook, enriched uranium can be produced by effusion of gaseous UF6 across a porous membrane. Suppose a process were developed to allow effusion of gaseous uranium atoms, U(g).Calculate the ratio of effusion rates for 235U and 238U.

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Moskun's class at CERRITOS.
