Re: How will these gases be distributed?

This might be a case of 'badly worded question'. I suppose ithout the masses of the different molecules it's not really possible to calculate when the pressure is the same in each bulb.

It's not that Metalcore can't be good music, but it's a bunch of short-haired, basecap-wearing, can't-pull-a-decent-death-growl and attracting-strange-hardcoredancing-morons hipsters.
