Could someone please help me with this question ?
Q. Two cylinders of volume V and 4V are connected by a capillary tube. Both are at 293K and contain air at atmospheric pressure. The larger container is heated until 373K. Calculate the final pressure of gas in the two containers.
I assume the mass of gas will remain constant so using pv/t = k I worked out two values of k (341 and 1365) taking v=1 and v=4. Where do I go from here ?

when the cylinders are of different volumes than how come the mass of the gass in those cylinders will be same???
use PV = nRT ( n is no. of moles.....the no of moles should be 4 times in the 2nd cylinder)...do like this

where R is the gas constant at 8.314 J K-1 mol-1
