Cvm and Cpm ?

Postby abbydouglas1K » Fri Feb 01, 2019 9:05 am

What is the difference between these two ? I saw the chart in the book but I am not sure which one to use when a question is asking to use them.

Cv is used when there is constant volume and Cp is used when there is constant pressure.

Cv is used when the reaction is being conducted at constant volume and Cp is used when the reaction is being conducted with constant pressure.
