To find the speed of sound in a gas, or any property of a gas involving elasticity

(see the discussion of the Helmholtz oscillator, B&B page 22, or B&B problem 1.6, or

French Pages 57-59.), we need the “bulk modulus” of the fluid. This will correspond

to the “spring constant” of a spring, and will give the magnitude of the restoring

agency (pressure for a gas, force for a spring) in terms of the change in physical

dimension (volume for a gas, length for a spring). It turns out to be more useful

to use an intensive quantity for the bulk modulus of a gas, so what we want is the

change in pressure per fractional change in volume, so the bulk modulus, denoted

as κ (the Greek “kappa” which, when written, has a great tendency to look like k,

and in fact French uses “K”), is

∆p dp

κ=− , or κ = −V .

∆V /V dV

The minus sign indicates that for normal fluids (not all are!), a negative change in

volume results in an increase in pressure.

To find the bulk modulus, we need to know something about the gas and how

it behaves. For our purposes, we will need three basic principles (actually 2 1/2)

which we get from thermodynamics, or the kinetic theory of gasses. You might well

have encountered these in previous classes, such as chemistry.

A) The ideal gas law; pV = nRT , with the standard terminology.

B) The first law of thermodynamics; dU = dQ − p dV , where U is internal

energy and Q is heat.

C) (a consequence of B, so call it B 1/2) The internal energy of a gas is a

state variable, and hence is a function of temperature. This allows us to say that

dU = n CV dT , where CV is the molar heat capacity at constant volume. What this

means is that any process that changes U will change U by the same amount as

a constant-volume process with the same temperature change would. Specifically,

for a constant-pressure process, dU = n Cp dT − p dV , where Cp is the molar heat

capacity at constant pressure.

So, we have two expressions for dU , and they must be the same;

n CV dT = n Cp dT − p dV.

1

Using the ideal gas law for a constant-pressure process (dp = 0), n R dT = p dV , so

the above relation between CV and Cp becomes

n CV dT = n Cp dT − n R dT, or Cp = CV + R.

From this, we se that Cp > CV . This is what is expected from physical grounds;

if a gas is free to expand (constant pressure), it takes more heat to increase the

temperature than if the gas is confined. It will be convenient to define the quantity

γ ≡ CCVp > 1.

For an adiabatic process, no heat is added, and dQ = 0. Note that this does not

mean that dT = 0; in fact, for an adiabatic process, none of the intensive quantities

p, T or the molar volume V /n will be constant. Equating expressions for dU ,

dU = n CV dT = −p dV ;

from p V = n R T ,

n R dT = (V dp + p dV ) ,

CV (V dp + p dV ) = −R p dV

CV V dp = − (R + CV ) p dV

V dp = −γ p dV.

At this point, we can get our result for the adiabatic bulk modulus,

dp

κ = −V = γ p.

dV

We can also get a more general result relating the pressure and volume for an

adiabatic process,

p V γ = constant,

In practice, isothermal (dT = 0) processes for gasses are rather rare; adding

heat to a system in such a way that the temperature remains uniform is difficult,

and is often just an idealization. For such a process, however, the isothermal bulk

modulus is simply κ = p. Note that this corresponds to γ = 1, or a system in which

the heat capacities at constant volume and constant pressure are nearly identical.

This is often the case for condensed matter, but not for gasses.
