Hi! In the solutions manual I have seen them go back and forth between using deltaS=nCpln(t2/t1) and deltaS=nRln(t2/t1). I am confused on if we are supposed to be using Cp or R? or base it on the problem. Do you only use Cp when doing the (3/2*R) or (5/2*R)?
Also when solving equations that involve ideal gases, Cp is used for constant pressure and Cv is used for constant volume. Usually it is specified in the problem whether the ideal gas is under constant pressure/volume so substitute Cp or Cv accordingly.
