Homework 4C.1 comparing molar heat capacities

Postby Edmund Zhi 2B » Sat Feb 01, 2020 3:15 pm

Which gas has the higher molar heat capacity, NO or NO2?

How are we supposed to know this/figure this out, and where in the textbook does it talk about this or are we supposed to apply other concepts from other units?

Molar heat capacity is the heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mol of a substance by 1 degree Celsius.
Since NO2 is a larger molecule than NO, it would require more heat to raise the temperature of 1 mol of NO2 by 1 degree versus the heat required to raise the temp of NO by 1 degree.
