FAQ

What is Adiabatic Index?
The adiabatic index, the ratio of specific heats, or Laplace's coefficient,is the ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure (Cp) to heat capacity at constant volume (Cv). It is sometimes also known as the isentropic expansion factor and is denoted by γ (gamma) for an ideal gas and is represented as γ=Cp/Cv or Heat Capacity Ratio=Molar Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure/Molar Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Volume. Molar Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Volume , Cv ( of a gas ) is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mol of the gas by 1 °C at the constant volume and Molar Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure , Cp ( of a gas ) is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mol of the gas by 1 °C at the constant volume.
