Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

At constant pressure, abbreviated as \(C_p\), some of the heat goes to doing work.  The value of heat capacity depends on whether the heat is added at constant volume, constant pressure, etc. 

Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure Formula

\(\large{ Q = n \; C_p \; \Delta T }\)          

Where:

\(\large{ Q }\) = heat transfer

\(\large{ n }\) = amount of substance

\(\large{ C_p }\) = heat constant pressure

\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature differential
