constant pressure/volume vs specific/molar heat capacities

Postby Beatrice Petelo 1F » Sat Feb 02, 2019 10:42 pm

Any advice to approaching calorimetry problems and differentiating between which constant (constant pressure/volume and specific/molar heat capacities) to use?

Thanks!

I always start with writing down all my givens. You can then look for formulas that can solve for what youre looking for.

Yeah writing down all the given information always helps.

the information given is always the biggest clue, what units are and what fits into the equation will help you solve for what you need to find.

Why do we have to use integrals to find constant pressure?
