Ratio of Specific Heat Experiment
Ratio of Specific Heat Experiment
A plot of the Piston Height vs. the Period Squared shows that the period increases as the gas volume increases. The slope of the line is related to the ratio of specific heats (Cp /Cv) and is different for the two gases.
Ratio of Specific Heat Experiment
The pressure oscillates after the piston is plucked by hand.
