What is the Poisson's ratio for the noble gases?

$\begin{array}{1 1} 1.66\\ 1.4 \\ 1.5 \\ 1.75 \end{array}$

1 Answer

Answer: 1.66
Poisson's ratio = $\large\frac{C_p}{C_v}$.
Noble gases are monoatomic, and for monoatomic gases, this ratio = $\Large\frac{\large\frac{5}{2}}{\large\frac{3}{2}}$ $ = 1.66$
