Ratio of Specific Heat Experiment

SKU: EX-5531A Categories: ,

The complete solution for determining the ratio of specific heat capacities for air by measuring the period of oscillation of the piston in a cylinder filled with air.

Available on backorder

In this experiment, the ratio of specific heat capacities for air is determined using Ruchardt’s method of measuring the period of oscillation of the piston in a cylinder filled with air.

A cylinder is filled with air and a Pressure Sensor is attached. The piston is plucked by hand and allowed to oscillate. The oscillating pressure is recorded as a function of time and the period is determined. The ratio of specific heat capacities is calculated using the period of oscillation, according to Ruchardt’s method.

PASCO Advantage: Since the oscillations are plotted, it is easy to accurately measure the period of oscillation.
