A thermodynamics ideal gas , initially at temperature $\;T_{1}\;$ ia enclosed in a cylinder fitted with a friction less piston . The gas is allowed to expand adiabatically to a temperature $\;T_{2}\;$ by releasing the piston suddenly . If $\;L_{1}\;$ and $\;L_{2}\;$ are the lengths of gas column before and after expansion respectively , then $\;\large\frac{T_{1}}{T_{2}}\;$ is given by

Answer : $\;(\large\frac{L_{2}}{L_{1}})^{\large\frac{2}{3}}$
Explanation :
For an adiabatic process
$PV^{r} =Constant$
$TV^{r-1} = Constant$
$T_{1}V_{1}^{r-1} = T_{2} V_{2}^{r-1}$
$\large\frac{T_{1}}{T_{2}} = (\large\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}})^{r-1} = (\large\frac{L_{2}A}{L_{1}A})^{\large\frac{3}{5} -1}= (\large\frac{L_{2}}{L_{1}})^{\large\frac{2}{3}}$
