Answer: 6 cal
No. of moles in 4.484 of ideal gas at STP = $\frac{4.48}{22.4} = 0.2$
Thus to raise the temperature of 0.2 mol of the ideal gas, through $15^\circ C$ heat absorbed = 12 cal.
$\therefore$ to raise the temperature of 1 mol of the gas through $1^\circ C$, heat absorbed = $\frac{12}{15} \times \frac{1}{0.2} = 4$ cal
i.e., $C_V$ = 4 cal
$\therefore C_P = C_V + R$ = 4 cal + 2 cal = 6 cal
