    Specific Heat Capacity for Gas

    Thanks for the quick reply. I guess my confusion was with the appropriate definitions of the heat capacities being state variables. In my textbook the heat capacities are declared as non-state variables, and the same is said here, https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/airplane/specheat.html However...

    Specific Heat Capacity for Gas

    So I have a question regarding the specific heat capacities in thermodynamics. In general the specific heat capacities for a gas (or gas mixture in thermo-chemical equilibrium) can be expressed as, ## c_p = \left(\frac{\partial h}{\partial T}\right)_p \qquad \text{and} \qquad c_v=...
