1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
c_{p}=c_{v}+TV?^2/? 2. Relevant equations c_{p}=T/N([itex]\partialS[/itex]/[itex]\partialT[/itex])_{p} 3. The attempt at a solution I have the equation, just not sure how to apply it? Any help would be appreciated

Thermodynamic derivation of heat capacity
TdS = dU + PdV C_{P} = (∂Q/∂T)_{P} = T(∂S/∂T)_{P} = (∂U/∂T)_{P} + P(∂V/∂T)_{P} AM
