Why is specific heat of Earth atmosphere 7/2 R, same as Cp of diatomic
gases of which the atmosphere is? composed?
[that is if we neglect variation of pressure of water vapor, and ignore the mountains, and other such minor complications]
Re: Why is specific heat of Earth atmosphere 7/2 R, same as Cp of diatomic
If I remember right, R=Cp+Cv and Cp is for constant pressure and Cv is for constant volume so that is how you find the two heat capacities. If you know one then you can find the other. Can you get it from here?
