    I was wondering why bubbles of different gases are different sizes ?
    I am aware that compound gases and elemental gases have different molecular weights and thus molecular volumes. But is it the moles of gas used or just simply the volume of gas let out through the liquid that governs bubble size ?

    I understand this makes little to no sense, but i would appreciate feedback :P.

    Cheers - Joshers

    the volume of gas determines the size of the bubble, oh pressure in the liquid also

    Actually the temperature will be a determining factor, and the boiling temperature of the liquid. No two bubbles are exactly the same.
