For an ideal gas PV=nRT where n is the number of moles show that the heat transferred can be written as:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

dQ = \frac{C_V}{nR}VdP + \frac{C_P}{nR}PdV

[/tex]

Really not sure where to start with this...

I have used

[tex]

dQ = dU + PdV

[/tex]

But it hasn't really lead anywhere.
