Calculating the change in entropy with constant pressure

When the question says the reaction is occuring at constant pressure, can we use C instead of C (p,m) in our equation (change in S = nC(p,m)ln(T2/T1)? Thanks!

Re: Calculating the change in entropy with constant pressure

For previous questions, C(p,m) = (5/2)R, so I assume you can just use this instead of C.
S = n(5/2)Rln(T2/T1)
