Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Specific heat ratio, abbreviated as \(C_p\), is the ratio of two specific heats.  If we specify any two properties of the system, then the state of the system is fully specific.

Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure Formula

\(\large{ C_p = \left(\frac{ \partial H }{ \partial T }\right)_p }\)

Where:

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

\(\large{ \partial H }\) = enthalpy rate of change

\(\large{ p }\) = pressure

\(\large{ \partial T }\) = temperature rate of change

\(\large{ \partial }\) = designates heat as a path function
