for liquid specific heat at constant pressure was presented. Here, the related liquid specific heat at constant volume is discussed.

Values of liquid specific heat at constant volume (cv) are

required for various process calculations, such as determining

emergency relief-venting requirements for process vessels.

Published values of liquid cv are usually not available; it is

widely assumed that cv is approximately equal to the specific

heat at constant pressure (cp). The assumption that the difference between liquid cp and cv is small is explicitly made in

many thermodynamics textbooks and application papers

(e.g., Refs. 26). However, this is incorrect, as a review of the

properties of common liquids shows that the two specific

heats in fact differ significantly.

Thermodynamic relationships

The difference between the two specific heats can be expressed (7) as:

cp cv = Tv2/K

are defined by both 0 and K 0 in such a manner that

2/K 0 and hence cp cv 0.) It is assumed that since

and K are both small for liquids, then 2/K, and hence the difference cp cv, will also be small. However, for real liquids,

2/K does not generally approach zero, but retains a significant value. The arguments in the literature emphasize the fact

that takes on small values for liquids, while ignoring the

even smaller values taken on by K.

The ranges of values of the terms in Eq. 1 have been determined for common compounds over temperatures ranging from 300 K to 450 K, as shown in Table 1. The calculations were carried out using the Lee-Kesler (8) and Wu and

Stiel (9) equations of state for the organic compounds and

the equation of state of Keenan, et al. (10) for water. Values

of cp and cv for the selected compounds are given in Table

2.

The computed values of cp cv have been verified by

comparing computed and published (11) values of K, as

shown in Table 3. The values calculated from the relevant

equations of state agree quite well with the published values.

The assumption that cp cv is small for liquids is frequently made in the published literature (26). The justifications

for this assumption given in these references include the

near-incompressibility and the small values of thermal expan-

Recommendations

Computed values of liquid cv and K from the Lee-Kesler (8),

Wu and Stiel (9), and Keenan (10) equations of state are generally consistent with and are verified by the published values of

K, the bulk compressibility.

In general, it is not valid to assume for real liquids that cv

is approximately equal to cp. With the single (and wellknown) exception of water in the vicinity of 4C (where the

are significantly less than cp values for the liquids examined.

For the selected compounds and temperature range, the ratio

of cp to cv lies between 1 and 2.

It is recommended that cv , if not available from the

published literature, be computed from applicable equaCEP

tions of state.
