The Value of Cp − Cv is 1.00 R for a Gas Sample in State a and 1.08 R in State B. - Physics


  The value of Cp − Cv is 1.00 R for a gas sample in state A and 1.08 R in state B. Let pAand pB denote the pressures and TA and TB denote the temperatures of the states A and B, respectively. It is most likely that


  •  pA < pB and TA > TB

  •  pA > pB and TA < TB

  • pA = pB and TA < TB

  • pA > pB and TA = TB

 pA < pB and TA > TB

Cp − Cv  = R for the gas in state A, which means it is acting as an ideal gas in that state, whereas Cp − Cv = 1.08R in state B, i.e. the behaviour of the gas is that of a real gas in that state. To be an ideal gas, a real gas at STP should be at a very high temperature and low pressure. Therefore, P< PB and TA > Twhere Pand PB denotes the pressure and TAand TB denotes the temperature of system A and B reepectively.
