Unformatted text preview: e.g., T , P independent then heat capacity is a function of T and P , C ( T, P ) . 16.3.1. Example 1: The Ideal Gas Law The equation of state for volume of an ideal gas is PV = nRT , (16.10) where R is the gas constant (8.315 J K − 1 mol − 1 ) and n is the number of moles. The ideal gas equation of state can be expressed in terms of intensive variables only PV m = RT , (16.11) where V m = V n . The equation of state can also be expressed in terms of density ρ = m V (and molar mass m/n ) ρ = mP nRT = MP RT . (16.12) 116...
