Example 9.2

Postby Angela 1K » Sun Jan 28, 2018 6:56 pm

The question asks: A sample of nitrogen gas of volume 20.0 L at 5.00 kPa is heated from 20. C to 400. C at constant volume. What is the change in the entropy of the nitrogen? The molar heat capacity of nitrogen at constant volume, CV, m is 20.91 J/Kmol.

The textbook solves this question by using and .

I don't understand why they use .

It uses Cv,m because there is a constant volume so they can use that heat capacity.

Since there is a Cv,m does the m stand for constant MOLAR heat capacity?
