Test: AP Chemistry

A mixture of neon gas and argon gas is present in a container (container A). There are equal amounts of both gases in the container. A small pinhole is created in the container, allowing the gases to effuse into an empty container (container B). The effusion time is very brief, and the pinhole is eventually plugged, resulting in a mixture of both gases in both containers.


Which of the following statements is true after the pinhole is plugged?

Both gases will have equal partial pressures in container A

Container B will contain twice as many neon atoms as argon atoms

Container B will contain twice as many argon atoms as neon atoms

The partial pressure for argon is greater than the partial pressure for neon in container A
