7th edition 4C.1

Which gaseous compound do you expect to have the higher molar heat capacity, NO or NO2? How would you determine which compound has the higher molar heat capacity?

NO2 would have a higher heat capacity because heat capacity increases with molecular complexity. The more atoms present in a molecule allows for there to be more possible bonds that have vibrations which absorb added energy.
