Specific Heat of a Rigid Triangular Molecule

Specific Heat of a Rigid Triangular Molecule

A rigid triangular molecule consists of three non-collinear atoms joined by rigid rods. The constant pressure molar specific heat \(C_p\) of an ideal gas consisting of such molecules is (a) \(6R\) (b) \(5R\) (c) \(4R\) (d) \(3R\) Degrees of freedom are the number of...
Variation of Specific Heat

Variation of Specific Heat

The variation of the specific heat of a substance is given by the expression $$ C=A+BT^2$$ where \(A\) and \(B\) are constants and \(T\) is the Celsius temperature. Find the difference between the mean specific heat and specific heat at midpoint. Discussion: The...
