3. A container is divided into two equal volumes by a partition. Side 1 contains n 1 moles of an ideal gas at pressure p 1 and absolute temper- ature T . Side 2 has n 2 moles of the same ideal gas at temperature bT ( b is a constant). a) Find the pressure of the gas in side 2 in terms of n 1 , n 2 , p 1 , and b . What should your answer be in the case where both b = 1 and n 1 = n 2 ? Check that your answer has the correct behavior for this

Unformatted text preview: case. b) The partition is removed and the gases mix and reach equilibrium. Taking the molar heat capacity of the gas to be C (i.e. with units J/mol-K), compute the ±nal temperature in terms of n 1 , n 2 , b , and T . What should your answer be in the case b = 1? Check that your answer has the correct behavior for this case....
