Abstract. The equations for the time evolution of the controversial adiabatic piston problem are obtained using a very primitive model of the fluids. It thus shows that the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics lead to equations of motion which determine uniquely the final equilibrium state, while this state cannot be predicted using the laws of thermostatics only.
