1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A container has movable(without friction) piston on top. The container and the piston are all made of perfectly insulating material allowing no heat transfer between outside and inside the container. The container is divided into two compartments by a rigid partition made of a thermally conducting material that allows slow transfer of heat. The lower compartment of the container is filled with 2 moles of an ideal monatomic gas at 700 K And the upper compartment is filled with 2 moles of an ideal diatomic gas at 400 K. The heat capacities per mole of an ideal monatomic gas are Cv = 3/2 R , Cp= 5/2 R and those for an ideal diatomic gas are Cv= 5/2 R, Cp= 7/2 R. Q. Consider the partition to be rigidly fixed so that it does not move. When equilibrium is achieved, the final temperature of the gases will be A. 550 K B. 525 K C. 513 K D. 490 K 2. Relevant equations ΔQ = nCΔt 3. The attempt at a solution The lower one chamber will lose heat as, ΔQ = 2* C (700 - T) Upper one will gain as ΔQ = 2 * C ( T - 400) What C to take Cv or Cp? Confusion here.
