Adiabatic, reversible process on ideal gas
An ideal gas with constant specific heats, cv and cp,
is compressed adiabatically and reversibly.
- Which property of the ideal gas remains constant during this
particular process ?
- Prove that for this process the initial state (index 1) and final state
(2) are related by the equation :
p1 v1n =
HINT : use an equation for the property given as answer to question 1.
- Express the exponent "n" in terms of the specific heats
cv and cp.
