When argon gas is introduced at the bottom of the tank, it pushes air up. Imagine this argon- air boundary as a piston, it moves up at the speed of 1.2 m/hr. Due to diffusion between the two gases, they will mix in the tank. This simulation is to compare the speed of diffusion and the speed of filling the argon gas, to see if we can get a pure argon gas in the tank. We assume the process is at 1 atmosphere (101325 Pa) and room temperature (300 K).
