The Ratio of Specific Heat is 1.613

Cp / Cv = 1.613

Cp = 1.613 Cv

The Molar mass M is 17 kg/kilomole

Specific Gas Constant R(specific) = R / M

The Value of R is 8.314 * 10³ J/kmol K

R(specific) = 8314 / 17

R(specific) = 489 J/kg K

We know that Cp - Cv = R(specific)

Cp - Cv = 489

1.613 Cv - Cv = 489

0.613 Cv = 489

Cv = 797.81 J/kg K

Cp = 1.613 Cv

Cp = 1.613 9* 797.81 J/kg K

Cp = 1286.86 J/kg K.

Therefore

Specific Heat at Constant Volume is 797.81 J/kg K.

Specific Heat at Constant Pressure is 1286.86 J/kg K.
