Abstract

An infinite vertical cylinder is filled with an ideal monatomic gas. Calculate the heat capacity of the gas, assuming that its temperature and the gravitational acceleration do not depend on height! Also, consider a cylinder of finite height as well as the case in which the gravitational acceleration varies with height.
