 P: 542 $C_p$ : Specific Heat at constant pressure $C_v$ : Specific Heat at constant volume Also $C_p - C_v = R$ $\frac {C_p}{C_v} = lamda$ where lamda = $1 + \frac {2}{f}$ Where f=degrees of freedon for monoatomic gas , f=3 for diatomic gas , f=3 You can solve for two expressions at the top to get Cp BJ
