Inside a cylinder having insulating walls and closed at ends is a movable piston, which divides the cylinder into two compartments. On one side of the piston is a mass m of a gas and on the other side a mass 2 m of the same gas. What fraction of volume of the cylinder will be occupied by the larger mass of the gas when the piston is in equilibrium ? Consider that the movable piston is conducting so that the temperature is the same throughout
