How the Heat Capacity Ratio of Common Fluids Table works?



This table presents the absolute viscosity of some common fluids and his evolution against the temperature.

Ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure (CP) to heat capacity at constant volume (CV). It is sometimes also known as the isentropic expansion factor and is denoted by γ (gamma) for an ideal gas or κ (kappa), the isentropic exponent for a real gas.

Ratio of Sp.Heats (kappa)
