In addition to the other answers, the heat capacity at constant volume and the heat capacity at constant temperature are always separated by a factor of R. (C)v,m = R + (C)p,m. So, for single atoms 3/2R is the (C)v,m and 5/2R is the (C)P,m, while linear atoms have a (C)v,m of 5/2R, and more complicated molecules have a (C)v,m of 3R.
