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} $

Can you answer this question?

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$
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$
$z=1.38\times 10^5$s
$z\approx 1.4\times 10^5sec$
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
