### equipartition theorum

On the midterm, will we be given the formulas for heat capacity monatomic ideal gases? For example, will we be given the formula for a monatomic ideal gas heat capacity at constant volume/pressure (4C.3)

Yep! On the equation sheet on the cover of the test there should be the equations for the molar heat capacities of monatomic ideal gases at constant pressure and constant volume. I believe that Cp = (5/2)R and Cv = (3/2)R.
