What are CP and CP formulas?

Cp and Cv are constants. Cp=20.8 and Cv=12.5.
They are used in the q (or delta H) equations, where qp (q at constant pressure) = nCp(delta T), and qv (q at constant volume) = nCv(delta T).
Hope that helps!

C is just heat capacity, and Cp molar heat capacity at constant pressure while Cv is molar heat capacity at constant volume.
