What are some examples of monatomic gases where we will have to calculate enthalpy with Cv,m as 3/2 R? Will most calculations for with Cv,m use the values associated with Linear molecules (5/2 R) and Nonlinear molecules (3 R)?
Yes can someone please go over when we use the 5/2R and the 3/2R? I still don't quite get when to use them and why to use them
The monatomic gases where we use (-)R are for when calculating the heat capacity of ideal gases so everything on the right side of the periodic table. You’d use 3/2R for monatomic ideal gases at constant volume. You’d use 5/2R for diatomic ideal gases at constant volume.
