The volume of a gas is halved during an adiabatic compression

that increases the pressure by a factor of 2.5.

a. What is the specific heat ratio ?

b. By what factor does the temperature increase?

a. The specific heat ratio is 1.32.

b. The temperature increase ration is 1.25.

(a )The quantity remains same for an adiabatic process which means (considering two states as 1 and 2),

(b) As of the ideal gas law,

When, it is dealt with same amount of gas. This can written as,

(a) is given parametrically, so, to find the substitute, as of the equation (1),

(b) Let's the needed ratio be X.
