Constant Volume vs Constant Pressure

Postby ntruong2H » Tue Feb 14, 2017 3:56 pm

If the conditions under which the reaction occurs are not explicitly stated, how do we know whether to use the heat capacity for constant volume or to use the one for constant pressure? Thank you.

If not specified, show your assumption on the test paper.
