Answer

d.

Explanation

Here, volume of the vessel does not changed, therefore no work done by the surrounding on the gas; because no heat transferred from surrounding to system. Therefore total internal energy does not change. So we can consider total internal energy of the vessel is sum of two internal energies in the two compartments.

Equation

Now, if the gas have ideal gas characteristic than internal energies are given as,

Equation

Equation

Equation

Where, T is the equilibrium temperature, Equation are the numbers of moles of gasses, which are in different compartment.

From equation (1),

Equation

Equation

Now for ideal gas,

Equation

Equation

From equation (2),

Equation
