is there another way of considering the specific heat capaciaty of a material (many gas) other than with respect to the number of degrees of freedom with gives a constant out put for all monocrmatic gases for all temperature and pressure.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For a monocromatic gas c=(3/2)*n*R*m

where m = mass of particle

n = number of moles

R = gas constant

Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
