Ideal Gases Formula Pt. 2

Postby Jacob Shalkevich 1A » Mon Feb 08, 2016 5:40 pm

When might you use U=3/2nRT; Cv=3/2R; Cp=5/2R?
I am yet to come across a practice problem in which I need it.

One instance would be when you find the change in entropy of a monatomic ideal gas due to change in temperature.

If you're looking for a problem that incorporates any of U=3/2nRT; Cv=3/2R; and/or Cp=5/2R, take a look at problem 8.31 in Chapter 8!
