The container sho

Answer :


V1= 2.0litre, V2=3.0litre

When the partition is removed the gases in both the partition mix without any loss of energy and acquire a common pressure P after mixing.

Total volume of gas after equilibrium =

From ideal gas equation, product of pressure p and volume V is


n=no. of moles of gas



Also, from kinetic theory of gases,





n=no. of moles of gas

E=internal kinetic energy of gas

Initially is present

Total initial energy

Using eqn.(iii) and (iv), we get

After removing the partition,

Total moles=

Total volume =

Using eqn-(0) we have final product of pressure p and volume V equal to

Common pressure p is given by

Putting the values of we get

Therefore, total final pressure after the partition is removed is 1.6atm.
