A Problem from Specific Heat of Gases

Priyanshi Gaur posted”:

“A sample of air weighing 1.18g occupies 1000 cubic cm when kept at 300 K at 1000000 Pa.When 2 cal of heat is added to it at constant volume, its temperature increases by 1 degree celcius.Calculate the amount of heat needed to increase the temperature of air by 1 degree celcius at constant pressure if the mechanical equivalent of heat is 4.2*10000000 erg/cal.”

Hints:

Remember that

Cp/Cv = γ

Cp-Cv=R
