This isn't trivial

  1. Apr 16, 2010 #1
    this might seem trivial but i have no thermo books on hand and i can't remember what we call those properties whose value depends only on initial and final states of gas but not on the process adopted to reach final state?

    don't bother. found it could anybody tell me instead the equation of how Cv varies if both P and V are changing?

    By definition Cv only exists when V is a constant.
