4.

The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of gas through one degree at constant volume, is called

 [A]. specific heat at constant volume [B]. specific heat at constant pressure [C]. kilo Joule [D]. none of these

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Rahul Kant Thakur said: (Sep 8, 2013) It's a definition. & Q=mCv(T2-T1).

 Mahender said: (Sep 3, 2014) Q=mcv(t2-t1) is the formula of heat transfer. The mass have a limit heat it is observed can it is raise is called specific heat.

 Aaron said: (Dec 9, 2014) The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of gas through one degree is known as Specific heat and they given as Constant pressure. So it is termed as Specific heat at constant pressure.

 Modi Shubham said: (Oct 24, 2015) I think pressure will not be constant at the time of increasing the temperature. So, if the heat per unit mass then it is called specific heat at constant volume.

 Gobinath said: (Feb 10, 2016) @Mr. Modi. No no pressure will be at constant at that time it is known as specific heat at constant pressure. But the thing is cp > cv, cp always more than cv.

 T.Nishanth said: (Mar 7, 2016) The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of through one degree at constant volume, it is known as specific heat constant volume.

 Nivas said: (Sep 13, 2016) When it is heated at a constant volume is called specific heat at constant volume. When it is heated at a constant pressure is called specific heat at constant pressure.

 Robel said: (Jan 30, 2017) At dv=o so it is constant volume, when it is heated at this condition called specific heat at constant volume(sealed).

 Nitin said: (Apr 17, 2019) Yes, the amount of heat required to raise the unit Maas temperature through one ° Celsius is called specific heat. If it performed at constant volume then it known as specific heat at constant volume.

 Raja Baksha said: (Oct 15, 2019) Why only 1 degree? why not 2 degree? please clarify anyone.
