The molar heat capacity for an ideal gas is?

(A) equal to the product of the molecular weight and specific heat capacity for any process (B) depends only on the nature of the gas at constant volume (C) depends on the process which the gas undergoes (D) all of the above are correct

1 Answer

$C_m = \large\frac{\Delta Q}{n\Delta T}$, $C_m$ is the molar heat capacity.
$\Rightarrow C_m = \large\frac{M \Delta Q}{n \Delta T}$$ = M\;C$, where $C$ is the specific heat capacity.
Also, $C_m$ depends on the degrees of freedom (at constant volume) and nature of process.
