## What is CV in chemistry?

Cv: During a small change in the temperature of a substance, Cv is the amount of heat energy absorbed/released per unit mass of a substance where volume does not change. Under a constant volume, the volume of a substance does not change, so the change in volume is zero.

## Why is CP is greater than CV?

The heat capacity at constant pressure CP is greater than the heat capacity at constant volume CV , because when heat is added at constant pressure, the substance expands and work.

## What is CP and CV in thermodynamics?

we derived Mayer’s law in thermodynamics. Mayer’s formula is Cp – Cv = R. Here Cp is molar specific heat capacity of an ideal gas at constant pressure, Cv is its molar specific heat at constant volume and R is the gas constant.

## How do you calculate CP in thermodynamics?

cp = cv + R The specific heat constants for constant pressure and constant volume processes are related to the gas constant for a given gas. This rather remarkable result has been derived from thermodynamic relations, which are based on observations of physical systems and processes.

## How do we calculate energy?

In classical mechanics, kinetic energy (KE) is equal to half of an object’s mass (1/2*m) multiplied by the velocity squared. For example, if a an object with a mass of 10 kg (m = 10 kg) is moving at a velocity of 5 meters per second (v = 5 m/s), the kinetic energy is equal to 125 Joules, or (1/2 * 10 kg) * 5 m/s2.

## What is the Joule formula?

In words: Work is equal to the force that is exerted times the distance over which it is exerted. In equation form: work (joules) = force (newtons) x distance (meters), where a joule is the unit of work, as defined in the following paragraph.

## What is work formula?

Work is done when a force that is applied to an object moves that object. The work is calculated by multiplying the force by the amount of movement of an object (W = F * d).
