Heat Capacity Ratio Calculator

The heat capacity ratio is the ratio of the heat added to or subtracted from an object to the resulting temperature change. It is also known as adiabatic index or ratio of specific heats or Poisson constant. An online heat capacity ratio calculator to find out the γ ratio of heat capacities for the given heat capacity. This gamma ratio of heat capacities calculator will be useful for aerospace and chemical engineers to do adiabatic index calculation.

Formula:

γ = Cp / Cv Where, γ = Heat Capacities Ratio Cp = Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure Cv = Heat Capacity at Constant Volume

Example:

Calculate the γ ratio for the heat capacities of 50 J/K and 20 J/K at constant pressure and volume.

Solution:

γ = 50 / 20
= 2.5
