How to Calculate Adiabatic Index?
Adiabatic Index calculator uses Heat Capacity Ratio=Molar Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure/Molar Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Volume to calculate the Heat Capacity Ratio, The adiabatic index, the ratio of specific heats, or Laplace's coefficient,is the ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure (C_{p}) to heat capacity at constant volume (C_{v}). It is sometimes also known as the isentropic expansion factor and is denoted by γ (gamma) for an ideal gas. Heat Capacity Ratio and is denoted by γ symbol.
