I know that adibatic process means no heat transfer.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i.e., →PV^{[itex]\gamma[/itex]}=constant.

Where [itex]\gamma[/itex] = 1.4 for diatomic gas, [itex]\gamma[/itex]= 1.6 for monoatomic gas.

My question is how [itex]\gamma[/itex]=C_{p}/C_{v}?

And can we prove theoritcally that [itex]\gamma[/itex] = 1.4 for diatomic gas, [itex]\gamma[/itex]= 1.6 for monoatomic gas.
