I Mixing fluids of different pressure

  1. Jan 28, 2017 #1
    Suppose, there is a container containing 7 kg of air at 2 barA pressure and another container that contains 1 kg of air at 40 barA pressure. Now, they are connected by a tube. What would be the final pressure of the mixture?
    As per simple arithmetic, it would be 54/8 barA i.e. around 7 barA. Am I right?
