Graham's Law Jargon
Diffusion: gases in higher concentration move to lower concentration, if possible.
Effusion: when gases escape through a small opening in a container.
Another small fact: big fat gass particles go slow and little skinny gass particles go fast.
Graham's law is so, so much fun right? But you're probably thinking, "What on Earth would I use this for?" Well, the next time you deicde to slash somebody's tire because they're making you made you can use Graham's Law to understand why the tire deflates. You see, slicing/poking/stabbing a tire creats a hole. Since the pressure inside the tire is higher than the pressure outside the tire the particales go zooming out, this is called effusion.
