A cylinder is closed at both ends and has insulating walls. It is divided into two compartments by a perfectly insulating partition that is perpendicular to the axis of the cylinder. Each compartment contains 1.00 mol of oxygen, which behaves as an ideal gas with y = 7/5. Initially the two compartments have equal volumes, and their temperatures are 550 K and 250 K. The partition is then allowed to move slowly until the pressures on its two sides are equal. Find the final temperatures in the two compartments. You may use the result of Problem 53.
