Which noble gas would be expected to show the largest deviations from ideal gas behaviors, He, Ne, Ar, Kr, or Xe?
Would it be He? I'm not sure how one would determine this.

  1. Xe would have the largest deviation, for two reasons: (1) The atoms are larger. (2) Xe also has a deeper "potential well" which implies stronger interatomic attraction.
