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

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...
