Specific Heat of an Ideal Gas
The specific heat of an ideal gas is
Cp=YR/Y−1 and Cv= R/Y-1
Here, R = Gas constant and depends upon molecular weight and R= R'/M (M is the molecular weight)
and Y depends upon the molecular structure i.e. monoatomic, diatomic and polyatomic.
The Specific Heat of an Ideal Gas Depends on
Molecular Weight and Structure are the factor on which the specific heat of an ideal gas depends.
