Pressure Interactions

Change the state variables in the two ensembles and observe the interactions between the state variables.  The piston mass is 50x the particles mass.  This large piston mass produces a slow mechanical oscillation about the equal-pressure equilibrium point whenever a disequilibrium is created.  Over time, however, these oscillations will decay as the mechanical energy is converted to thermal energy.  The piston will eventually fluctuate with a Brownian-like manner about the equilibrium point.
