I need to produce a relationship between the radius of a hole between compartment A (Pressure P1, Volume V1) and compartment B (P2, V2) and the time it takes for these pressures to reach an equilibrium point. I am assuming the gases begin at the same temperature at this point. I'm struggling for a starting point and can't see where the time relationship comes from. I am also wondering how much detail I need to go into to get an accurate relationship and would be grateful for any hints or tips on how to tackle this, Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
