Heat Capacity Ratio
The heat capacity ratio, or ratio of specific heats, is the ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure (\(C_P\)) to heat capacity at constant volume (\(C_V\)). For an ideal gas, the heat capacity is constant with temperature (\(\theta\)). Accordingly we can express the enthalpy as \(H = C_P*\theta\) and the internal energy as \(U = C_V \cdot \theta\). Thus, it can also be said that the heat capacity ratio is the ratio between enthalpy and internal energy.
