Main Question or Discussion Point

so if you put about 120 psi in a container and then instanly release it into another with something blocking the way, how fast would that escape, what are the variables in this

Unless you can make a C-D nozzle, you'll probably end up choking the valve on the tank and that will set your max velocity.

I forgot about choked flow, but in any case, a C-D nozzle still involves choked flow...(i know you know that). If he only cares about mass flow, getting a supersonic airstream doesn't actually do anything for him.
