Right. He said equally likely to escape. And to keep the question viable,
you have to play along and pretend that it is possible to change that and
only that.

Hewitt's oeuvre is a rich source of misconceptions that you might not
find elsewhere,
and the uniform-velocity gas appears to be original.

(I am interpreting a /uniform-velocity gas/ to be one in which all the
molecules have one and the same speed.) Why are you writing about a
uniform-velocity gas? Hewitt didn't say anything about a uniform-velocity
gas or liquid in the question under discussion.
