Carbon Monoxide - Specific Heat vs. Temperature
Carbon Monoxide Gas - CO - specific heat of at temperatures ranging 175 - 6000 K.
Carbon monoxide, CO, is flammable and very hazardous since it is very toxic and odorless. Carbon monoxide can be produced from incomplete combustion due to lack of oxygen.
Carbon monoxide interferes with the distribution of oxygen in the blood to the rest of the body. Depending on the amount inhaled, this gas can impede coordination, worsen cardiovascular conditions, and produce fatigue, headache, weakness, confusion, disorientation, nausea, and dizziness. High levels causes death.
Specific heat (C) is the amount of heat required to change the temperature of a mass unit of a substance by one degree.
- Isobaric specific heat (Cp) is used for substances in a constant pressure (ΔP = 0) system.
- Isochoric specific heat (Cv) is used for substances in a constant-volume, (= isovolumetric or isometric) closed system.
The specific heat - CP and CV - will vary with temperature. When calculating mass and volume flow of a substance in heated or cooled systems with high accuracy - the specific heat (= heat capacity) should be corrected according values in the table below.
Specific heat of Carbon Monoxide Gas - CO - at temperatures ranging 175 - 6000 K:
|Carbon Monoxide Gas - CO|

- cp -
The values above apply to undissociated states. At high temperatures above 1500 K dissociation becomes appreciable and pressure is a significant variable.
