drained from it through a stopcock?
It is necessary to remove the stopper from a separatory funnel in order for the
liquid to continually flow out. Removing the stopper would release the pressure
so the liquid will flow continuously. When stopper is not removed, the liquid
will not drain out no matter how you manipulate the stopcock. VI. REFERENCES
