Expert Answer

The two principal specific heats of a gas are:

a.     Specific heat of a gas at constant volume (cv)

b.     Specific heat of a gas at constant pressure (cp)

 

Specific heat of a gas at constant volume (cv): is defined as the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of gas through 1 degree Celsius or 1 K, when the volume of the gas is kept constant.

 

Specific heat of a gas at constant pressure (cp): is defined as the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of gas through 1 degree Celsius or 1 K, when the pressuree of the gas is kept constant.
