The Most Probable Distribution of Ideal Gas Molecules in Two Equal Volumes

Question: Show that the most probable distribution of 2N molecules of an ideal gas contained in two equal and connected volumes at the same temperature is N molecules in each volume.

Solution:
The molecules are identical, and independent. So their existence in two different volumes, can be described by binomial probability distribution. The probability of finding one molecule in one of the volumes, is given by:
