Answer :

In kinetic theory of ideal gas, the average energy is given by

Where R=gas constant=8.31Jmol^{-1}K^{-1}

T=temperature of gas

M=molar mass of gas

We know that,

Gas constant R=k_{B}N_{A}

Where k_{B}= Boltzmann constant = 1.38 × 10^{–23} J K^{–1}.

N_{A}=Avogadro number=6.02310^{-23} mol^{-1}

Molar mass of gas molecule M= Avogadro numbermass of gas molecule

M=N_{A}m

So average velocity becomes

Rms speed of gas molecule is given by

Where R=gas constant 8.31J/molK

T=temperature of gas

M=molar mass of gas

Putting the value gas constant R=k_{B}N_{A}

So rms speed becomes

M=N_{A}m

Therefore,

Let the mass of molecule in left part=m_{1}

Mass of molecule in right part=m_{2}

According to question, the rms speed of the molecules in the left part equals the mean speed of the molecules in the right part.

So, from equation (I) and(II) we get

Since the walls of separator is diathermic therefore temperature of both the parts will be same.

Squaring the above equation, we get

The ratio of the mass of a molecule in the left part to the mass of a molecule in the right part is 1.17.
