Chapter 16 The Heat Capacity of Solids In this chapter, we shall apply statistical methods to obtain the heat capacity (C v ) of solids, or more precisely, the heat capacity associated with the lattice vibrations of crystalline solids. In general, there are other contributions to heat capacity of solids. For example, in metals there is a contribution from the conduction electrons, which will be treated in Chapter 19. We shall only consider the vibrational heat capacity in this Chapter. 16.1 Introductory remarks
