Consider 14.61 moles of an ideal diatomic gas. (a) Find the total heat capacity of the gas at (i) constant volume and (ii) constant pressure assuming that the molecules translate and vibrate but do not rotate. Be sure to clearly explain how the equipartition of energy is used to solve this problem. (b) Repeat problem (a) above except assume that the molecules translate, rotate and vibrate.
