Internal Energy Equation

Postby Kayla Farris 1E » Wed Jan 25, 2017 8:34 pm

Will we ever have to use the equation deltaU=3/2 nR deltaT, or is it simply used to prove that q=-w?

I believe we would use it to find the specific heat (C) of a monatomic gas, however it is also used to prove that equation.
