Molar specific heat capacity of a gas at constant volume

Molar specific heat capacity of a gas at constant volume CV is defined as the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one mole of a gas through 1 K, keeping its volume constant.

Molar specific heat capacity of a gas at constant pressure

Molar specific heat capacity of a gas at constant pressure CP is defined as the quantity of heat to raise the temperature of one mole of a gas through 1 K keeping its pressure constant.
