### Questions about Equation Sheet

Posted:

**Tue Feb 11, 2020 12:45 am**On the constant and equation sheet, I saw the equations C

I know the equation to calculate heat capacity under a constant pressure is C

And what would the equation U= (3/2)nRT apply to?

Thank you :)

_{p}= (5/2) R, C_{v}= (3/2) R, and U= (3/2)nRT, and it brought up some questions.I know the equation to calculate heat capacity under a constant pressure is C

_{p}= (5/2) R, but for which kinds of molecules does this apply to? monoatomic or diatomic? I also have the same question for the equation C_{v}= (3/2) R.And what would the equation U= (3/2)nRT apply to?

Thank you :)
