Molecular flux--thermodynamic kinetics

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A volume is divided into two equal parts by a partition. The left volume has N atoms. The atoms have a mass m. A hole of area A is made in the partition at time t=0

A)Develop an expression for the number of white atoms on each side of the partition at time t.
B)Check your answer when t-->infinity and when t-->0
C) If the right volume is just free space how is your answer changed?

2. Relevant equations

$\Phi$=$\Delta$/$\Delta$$A$
*$\Delta$t

Phi= 1/4(v)n where n=N/V
3. The attempt at a solution

i got N=Noe^(vAt/4V) my teacher says this is wrong if i take t-->infinity....im pretty sure what i solved for is correct tho....

phi= dN/dAdt ***
