Cp(T) steam = 32.24 + 0.1923e-2*T + 1.055e-5*T^2 - 3.595e-9*T^3

However, there are a few things i need to mention here

First the units are kJ/kmol-K so you need to divide by 18 to get kJ/kg-K

Also, this equation is over the range of 273K - 1800K with a maximum error of 0.53%, so its pretty small, If i use the same equation at 2755 K I get

Cp(2755) Steam = 42.4393 kJ/kmol-K or

Cp(2755) Steam = 2.35 kJ/kg-K

As for the Cv values, my text does not have an equation

I have a computer database that's giving me 1.257

You could use Cp - Cv = R = 8.314 kJ/K-kmol, as a pretty good approximation.abercrombiems02 said:...

As for the Cv values, my text does not have an equation

So, Cv = 42.439 - 8.314 = 34.125 kJ/K-kmol

Hence, Cp/Cv = 1.244, which is not too far from the number quoted by Q_Goest.
