## What is CP of a gas?

Specific Heats (Cv and Cp for Monatomic and Diatomic Gases) The molar specific heat of a gas at constant pressure (Cp) is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mol of the gas by 1 C at the constant pressure. Its value for monatomic ideal gas is 5R/2 and the value for diatomic ideal gas is 7R/2.

## What is CP CV ratio?

Cp/Cv Ratio (Heat Capacity Ratio): In thermodynamics, the heat capacity ratio or ratio of specific heat capacities (Cp:Cv) is also known as the adiabatic index. It is the ratio of two specific heat capacities, Cp and Cv is given by: The Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure (Cp)/ Heat capacity at Constant Volume(Cv)

## Why does the specific heat ratio decrease with an increase in temperature?

The specific heats of real gases (as differentiated from ideal gases) are not constant with temperature. As temperature increases, higher energy rotational and vibrational states become accessible to molecular gases, thus increasing the number of degrees of freedom and lowering κ.

## What is the specific heat of water in KJ?

The specific heat of liquid water is 4.184 J/g, which is also 4.184 KJ/Kg. The calorie is a unit of heat defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 cm3 of water by 1˚C.
