# Find the ratio of specific heats.

In case of ideal triatomic gas , What is the ratio of specific heats \(C_p/C_v\)?

The ratio of specific heats \(\gamma =C_p/C_v\) is given as \[\gamma=1+\frac{2}{n}\]Here n is the degree of freedom of the gas.For triatomic gas degree of freedom is 6.

Therefore \[\gamma = 1+\frac{2}{6}=1.33\]
