Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

If you know the temperature rise of 2 moles of an ideal gas when a known amount of energy is transferred to it as heat, (hence are able to calculate cv by dU/dT); is the molar heat capacity simply half this value as it is half the number of moles?

If the process takes place at constant volume, yes.

Thanks for the quick reply!
Is the same true of heat capacity at constant pressure?
