Is methane heavier or lighter than air?
Methane is lighter than air.
No. Methane is lighter than air and will rise if allowed.
No, it is lighter than air about40%
Some are heavier, but some are lighter. For example, methane rises but propane sinks.
Yes methane is lighter than air because it is less dense than air.
Flatulence contains a portion of methane gas, and the methane portion is lighter than air.
It is lighter than air.
Just, simply, Lighter than Air Vehicles are lighter than air, so that makes them fly, and Heavier than air vehicles are heavier than air, but they use airfoils on the wings to fly.
yes, methane is lighter than air
No. Chlorine gas is not lighter than air. It is heavier than air.
Carbon Dioxide is heavier than the air.
Nitrous Oxide is heavier than air.
One is lighter and the other one is heavier. :D
they're lighter than air
Xenon is more than 4.5 times heavier than air.
Yes, methane is lighter than air, and will rise.
Helium is lighter than air
Moist air is heavier than dry air, because of the water.
Natural gas is lighter than air and rises.
"Gas" could mean anything - there are many different types of gases. Some are lighter than air (composite of mostly nitrogen and oxygen) like methane or helium and some are heavier like argon or carbon dioxide.
"Lighter than air" aircraft are lighter than air! The most common are blimps. They do not rely on wings to generate lift. They contain a lighter than air gas (ex:helium) that lifts the craft into the air when ties to the ground are released. "Heavier than air" aircraft are the opposite. They rely on wings to generate lift to get into the air. Common heavier than air aircraft are general airplanes you see in the… Read More
Aircraft are either lighter than air or heavier than air. A blimp is lighter than air, so is a hot air balloon. An airplane is heavier than air. They are in different categories because they use different techniques to takeoff and land. They have different requirements to operate. They work in a different manner. And they have different rules.
Oxygen is the heavier part, nitrogen and argon are lighter, even water vapor is lighter.
they are heavier than air hence why they don't fly unless in motion.
No, it is heavier than air and will sink to the floor.
Helium is infact, lighter than air.
Heavier: Airplanes Gliders Helicopters Lighter: Blimps Balloons
cold air is heavier
Air is mainly composed of nitrogen. Because nitrogen is lighter than oxygen, air is lighter than pure oxygen.
NO2 is denser than air
Radon is denser than air.
because it is lighter than air
Trick question, the blimp is heavier than air, the gas in the blimp is lighter than air. The volume of gas in the blimp is such that it overcomes the additional weight of the blimp, and thus creates lift/buoyancy.
Heavier than air objects accelerate downwards. Lighter than air objects accelerate upwards until they are no lighter than the air around them.
It isn't. Carbon Dioxide is heavier than air.
No. Helium is lighter than air
no hydrogen is lighter
one is lither
Greenhouse gases are obviously lighter than air How then are they measured by weight How does one weigh something that is lighter than air?
Greenhouse gasses are NOT "obviously lighter than air"; carbon dioxide is significantly heavier than air. One way to weigh something that's lighter than air is to weigh it in a vacuum.
There are two types of air-craft: Heavier-than-air and lighter-than-air. Lighter-than-air craft are things like zepplins and balloons that, due to the gas inside actually weigh less than air, and so float upwards. Heavier-than-air craft are basically everything else. Airplanes and the like are not able to float on air and require some sort of thrust and lift system to get them airborn.
Yes it must have, otherwise Helium would not be lighter than 'air' and propane would not be heavier than 'air'
No, many are lighter. Perhaps the most common lighter-than-air gas is helium, which is used to fill party balloons.
yes, anything with a lower atomic number would be lighter, for example, helium is lighter than air, which is why balloons float when filled with helium... the lighter substance rises above the heavier....
Hydrogen is lighter. This is why balloons rise, they have hydrogen in them. ____ Hydrogen is lighter than air, and has been used in large balloons in the past (such as the Hindenburg). However, Helium is also lighter than air, and is what is used in most balloons today, since it is not flammable.
Well, when I made a vortex using air, I used gases that are lighter.
"Hot air rises" therefore the air behind a warm front is lighter than air ahead of it and lighter than that air behind a cold front.
It has one more letter so no, it is heavier.
It depends on the specific compound, though most are denser than air.
Carbon dioxide gas is slightly heavier than air.
Methane gas settles down because methane gas is heavier than and is carried by the upward displacement of air. ---------------------------------------------- The density of methane is 0,717 g/L and the density of air is 1,2 g/L at 0 0C; consequently methane gas raise in the air.
