# Mayer's Relation Calculator

A renowned German chemist and physicist Julius Robert Mayer derived a relation between specific heat at constant pressure and the specific heat at constant volume for an ideal gas. He studied the fact that the specific heat capacity of a gas at constant pressure (Cp) is slightly greater than at constant volume (Cv). Given here is the Mayer's Relation calculator to find the universal gas constant in simple. Just enter the Cp and Cv values to get the result.

#### Formula:

R = C_{p} - C_{v}
**Where,**
R = Universal Gas Constant
C_{p} = Specific Heat at Constant Pressure
C_{v} = Specific Heat at Constant Volume
### Example:

Find the universal gas constant with the specific heat at constant pressure of 50 and specific heat at constant volume of 30.

#### Solution:

R = 50 -30

= 20
