Coefficient of thermometric conductivity

  1. Jul 21, 2012 #1
    Landau's book defines it as thermal conductivity/density/specific heat at constant pressure while Chandrasekhar's book defines it as thermal conductivity/density/specific heat at constant volume. I am confused. Any comments?

    I think both the books are correct. These are just the different "ways" to measure thermometric conductivity.

    Any other views ?
