Problem 26E

Propane gas (C3H8) behaves like an ideal gas with ? = 1.127. Determine the molar heat capacity at constant volume and the molar heat capacity at constant pressure.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 26E Step 1 of 5: In the given problem, we need to calculate the heat capacities under two different conditions by using the ratio of the Molar specific heat capacities = 1.127. The Molar Specific heat capacity (C) of a substance is the amount of heat required the rize the temperature of a mole of substance by a degree. Molar Specific Heat capacity can be measured under conditions of constant pressure or constant volume. Thus, two distinct heat capacities can be defined: CP=Molar heat capacity at constant Pressure and C = Volar heat capacity at constant volume
