dQ = nC(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{v}dT if volume is constant.

However, n = pV/RT.

What I don't understand is, why are we thinking n as constant when doing the integral?

I had two problems that involved this on a test I had today. At first I kept it constant and then changed n. But then I thought, wait... isn't there a T in n? then that T should be in the integral.

I understand the point, heat capacity per mole. But mathematically, the T that is in the equation for n should matter, right?

dS = dQ / T, if we substitute dQ in that equation we should get 1 / T^{2}in the integral also.

I know I'm wrong however, so if someone could tell me what's wrong?
