# Adiabatic compression of gas at two temperatures

I have a system that looks like this:

The top part is a piston, whereas the bottom is a displacer.

I have looked at the Isothermal case for this system in a separate thread (https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=553165)

But in short, the result was that the pressure of the system is equal to:

$$m=m_{gc}+m_{gh}$$
$$P=\frac{mR}{V_{gc}/T_c +V_{gh}/T_h}$$

How can I modify this to take into account the temperature rise caused by adiabatic compression? I suppose I need to write the T_gc + T_gh as functions of the compression by the top piston, but how?
