after the stopcock between the two flasks is opened → molecules will move to balance the pressures (equilibrium)
assuming one sphere = 1 mole of gas
Consider the flasks in the following diagrams.
b. Assuming the connecting tube has negligible volume, draw what each diagram will look like after the stopcock between the two flasks is opened.
