(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

On my formula sheet I have this:

W=(C/1-y)(Vf^(1-y)-Vi^(1-y))

y=Cp/Cv

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I am confused about what the C in C/1-y stands for. My textbook does not even have this formula and I realized that C is not Cp or Cv...
