Average Translational Kinetic Energy per Molecule of Gas

Average Translational Kinetic Energy per Molecule of Gas In Ideal gases, the molecules are considered as point particles. For point particles, there is no internal excitation, no vibration and no rotation. The point particles can have only translational motion and thus only translational energy. For an ideal gas the internal energy can only be translational Read more about Average Translational Kinetic Energy per Molecule of Gas[…]

Specific Heat of a Gas at Constant Pressure

Specific Heat of a Gas at Constant Pressure Consider n moles of a gas contained in a cylinder fitted with a frictionless movable piston bearing some load. Let heat be supplied to the gas slowly so that the pressure of the gas never exceeds the external pressure more than by an infinitesimal amount. Assuming, no Read more about Specific Heat of a Gas at Constant Pressure[…]
