Homework Help: Finding Literature Heat Capacity Values

  1. Apr 9, 2007 #1
    I need to find the heat capacities of
    CO2 (g), CH4 (g), C3H8 (g) , HCl (g)
    Al (s) , Ag (s) , Ti (s)

    if anyone can post a link or let me know what the heat capacities of these substances are I'd greatly appreciate it

    Search the internet for "heat capacity CO2", or some other variation.

    You can use the equation for heat capacity :

    [tex]C=\frac{P}{n} \frac{dv}{dt} +C_v[/tex]
    where f is the degrees of freedom of each gas and [tex]C_v[/tex] is the heat capacity at constant volume and [tex]\frac{P}{n} \frac{dv}{dt}[/tex] depends on the process it goes through.
