# Two beakers are placed in a small closed container at 25 °C. One contains 416 mL of a 0.112 M aqueous solution of C6H12O6; the second contains 242 mL of a 0.266 M aqueous solution of C6H12O6. Small amounts of water evaporate from both solutions. As time passes, the volume of solution in the second beaker gradually (Increases or decreases) and that in the first gradually (increases or decreases). If we wait long enough, what will the final volumes and concentrations be?
