Heat Capacity for Constant Pressure and Constant Volume

Postby Ava Harvey 2B » Thu Jan 18, 2018 5:44 pm

Do we need to know the equations for heat capacity in relation to constant pressure and constant volume where Cp=5/2*R and Cv=3/2*R? I don't remember going over these in lecture, but there were included in one of the homework problems so I just wanted to clarify! Thanks so much!

When talking to Lavelle at office hours he said that we would not need to memorize those values for the test.

I'm not entirely sure if we need to know them, but they are on the formula sheet so you don't need to memorize them.
