Specific Heat capacity and Molar specific Heat capacity

Chaitanya asked:

“how to calculate molar the heat capacity of a gas
given cp and cv of the gas?”

 

Answer:

Specific heat capacity of a substance is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1g of that substance through 1oC. It can be measured at constant pressure (Cp) and at constant volume (Cv).

Molar heat capacity of a substance is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mole of the substance by 1oC.

Molar heat capacity = Specific heat capacity × Molecular weight,

i.e.,

Cv = cv × M and Cp = cp × M.

 

A Hot Debate:: Which is better for IIT Preparation in Physics ? I E Irodov or H C Verma

It has been a question among many students; which is the best book for preparing for IIT JEE. Many suggest that H C Verma is the best one. A few who had access to I E Irodov’s book says that it is better.

What is your opinion?

Post your opinions as comments to this post. Please be sure that you post your comments after using the two books.

(In my opinion, you should use either only after completing all the problems of NCERT text book and the Resnick and Halidey)
