Grahams Law of Effusion shows the relationship between the molar or molecular of a gas and the rate at which it will effuse. Effusion is process of gas molecules escaping through tiny holes in their container.

Grahams Law of Effusion goes more along with anything that has gas in it, such as a helium balloon. One might see that a balloon that was once full of helium, is droopy and smaller after awhile due to the helium gas escaping it through microscopic holes.
