...led Newton to an erroneous value, c2=p/g=gff. Laplace corrected this to c2 = yp/g, where y denotes **the ratio of the specific heat of air at constant pressure to** that at constant volume; this factor allowed for the adiabatic changes of air temperature in such rapid... | |

...necessary correction follows from the heat generated in the compressions of sound waves and is equal to the **square root of the ratio of the specific heat of air...pressure to its specific heat at constant volume.** With this correction, Newton's analysis remained valid. That scarcely helped Newton as he prepared... | |
