This is an equation sheet that one of the TAs made up. The chart is only applicable to ideal gases. Please respond if there are any errors (I may have made a typo or 2). Remember that this may not have every equation for every scenario and that you will still need to know how and when to use these equations. Also, not all of these will be on the equation sheet given, so you should know how to derive these or where they come from.

You got it, also remember how to calculate it when presented with an ideal gas, although it is on the formula sheet.
Why is DeltaU for constant pressure being calculated using Cv? In order words, why is the change in internal energy for a system under constant pressure (DeltaU) using the Cv value in its calculations? Shouldn't DeltaU = q + w?
