Ideal gas heat capacity

Postby LeAirraBullingor2k » Mon Feb 10, 2020 11:47 pm

What does it mean when it says the heat capacity of the ideal gas is independent of temperature?

The ideal gas heat capacity at constant pressure (Cv) is represented as 3/2R for a monoatomic gas. This is different from a substance like water, where the heat capacity is 4.186 J/g*C, where J represents joules supplied in the form of heat. As you can see, the heat capacity of a monoatomic gas does not require heat supplied.
