Two thermally insulated vessels are connected by a narrow tube fitted with a valve that is initially closed. One vessel, of volume 16.8 L, contains oxygen at a temperature of 300 K and a pressure of 1.75 atm. The other vessel, of volume 22.4 L, contains oxygen at a temperature of 450 K and a pressure of 2.25 atm. When the valve is opened, the gases in the two vessels mix, and the temperature and pressure become uniform throughout.
(a) What is the final temperature?
(b) What is the final pressure?
