"It doesn't continue to move, it stops. The pipe had momentum while it was moving, but it soon transfers that to the internal gasses travelling in the opposite direction, stopping them both."

how does the pipe stop?
what causes the pipe to stop?

the air is released from the tank causing the pipe to move due to the mass of air escaping the tank.

the air inside the pipe and tank equalize.

there is no force applied to the pipe that could stop the pipe.

if so then what force and where?
