18.6.1. Molar Heat Capacity at Constant Volume Suppose we heat up n moles of gas while keeping its volume constant. The result of adding heat to the system is an increase of its temperature Here, C V is the molar heat capacity at constant volume , Q is the heat added, and

Unformatted text preview: T is the ∆ ∆ resulting increase in the temperature of the system. The first law of thermodynamics shows that Since the volume is kept constant ( V = 0) we conclude that ∆ and Using the previously derived equation for U in terms of T we can show that and thus...
