...thus generated. This is allowed for in the well-known formula for adiabatic compression : in which f = the ratio of the specific heat of air at constant pressure to that at constant volume = 1.408. V0 = the volume of the uncompressed air. p0 = the tension of the uncompressed... ## Practical Physics: A Laboratory Manual Fro Colleges and Technical Schools

...SPECIFIC HEATS OF AIR BY CLEMENT AND DESORMES' METHOD. The object of this experiment is to determine the ratio of the specific heat of air at constant pressure to its specific heat at constant volume. Theory. — The method of Clement and Desormes depends upon a knowledge of the behavior of a gas. When... ## Transactions, Volume 27, Issue 2

...pressure as 0.2375, the mechanical equivalent of heat as 778 ft-lb. From these values we obtain that for the ratio of the specific heat of air at constant pressure to that at constant volume, K = 1.40593.
