What is Cv: Definition and 102 Discussions

The Convair CV-240 is an American airliner that Convair manufactured from 1947 to 1954, initially as a possible replacement for the ubiquitous Douglas DC-3. Featuring a more modern design with cabin pressurization, the 240 series made some inroads as a commercial airliner, and had a long development cycle that produced various civil and military variants. Though reduced in numbers by attrition, various forms of the "Convairliners" continue to fly in the 21st century.

    I Is this proof of cp - cv correct

    cp=(dU/dT)P+P(dv/dT)P cv=(dU/dT)V cp-cv=(dU/dT)P+P(dv/dT)P- (dU/dT)V=(dU/dV)T(dV/dT)P+P(dv/dT)P- (dU/dV)T(dV/dT)V since dV is zero (dU/dV)T(dV/dT)V is zero. Hence cp-cv=(dU/dV)T(dV/dT)P+P(dv/dT)P I expanded both dU/dT and since one of them has no change in volume it is zero. is it acceptable...

    Relationship between Cp, Cv and R
