9.13

For 9.13, why does the answer key use Cv instead of Cp? In this problem the volume is not constant as it is being compressed so shouldn't we use Cp?

The answer key doesn't use C of any kind... Are you perhaps looking at the wrong problem?

Why doesnt this problem use Cv or Cp, but uses the equation deltaS=n*R*ln(T2/T1)?

This problem has an error in it so it is listed on Dr. Lavelle's website on the Solution Manual Errors Document. In this document, Cv is used.

The solution manual error says Cv but uses 5/2 R, which is the value for Cp. Maybe the doc has a typo too?
