# A box of $1m^3$ is filled with nitrogen at 1.5atm at 300K.The box has a hole of area $0.01mm^2$.How much time is required for pressure to reduce by 0.1atm.If pressure outside is 1atm

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;1.4\times 10^4sec\\(B)\;2.8\times 10^4sec\\(C)\;0.7\times 10^4sec\\(D)\;1.4\times 10^5sec\end{array}$

Particles passing through hole outside per unit time is
$\large\frac{1}{2}$$n_1\sqrt{\large\frac{KT}{m}}\Delta ta n_1-number of particles per unit area a-area of hole Net out flow \Rightarrow \large\frac{1}{2}$$(n_1-n_2)\sqrt{\large\frac{KT}{m}}\Delta a$
$n_1=\large\frac{P_1NA}{RT}$
After time $n_1'=\large\frac{P_1'NA}{RT}$
$n_1-n_1'$=Particles gone out
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1}{2}$$(n_1-n_2)\sqrt{\large\frac{KT}{m}}$$zA$
$\large\frac{P_1N_AV}{RT}-\frac{P_1'N_AV}{RT}=\large\frac{1}{2}$$(P_1-P_2)\large\frac{N_A}{RT}\sqrt{\frac{KT}{m}}$$zA$
$z=2\bigg[\large\frac{P_1-P_1'}{P_1-P_2}\bigg]\frac{V}{a}\sqrt\frac{m}{KT}$
$z=1.38\times 10^5$s
$z\approx 1.4\times 10^5sec$
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
