But the claim by rafazx10 really had nothing to do with how quickly a given gas permeates. The claim was that some gases expand faster than others with an increase in Temp. I'm pretty sure he was talking about a short term effect. I don't see anything in the ideal gas law equation that says the Pressure of one gas will be affected more by Temp than another. The bounce of a pressurized ball is due, in large part, to the internal pressure relative to the external pressure.
