comment How do molecules bubble off a photon?
I appreciate your response but you're not saying anything that I havn't said in my post.

I added the exercise from the book, you're actually stating exactly what the book asks for, I just had some trouble following it. You're right, the easiest way to show this seems to be that "cross-partial derivatives" are not equal.

comment Why is $\left.\frac{\partial C_V}{\partial V}\right|_T$ different in these derivations?
I appreciate your pragmatic approach. I'm posting the question however because I want to follow the derivation in my book, so I'm still wondering if my above derivation makes sense or not.

I have an example for an ideal monoatomic gas (where I know the explicit form of the constant volume heat capacity). But how to do this if there is no explicit $C_V$?

My above proof is to follow along the argument in a book. I know $\delta q$ could be shown to be not exact by integrating along a closed path, but I'm not quite sure at the moment how to do that.

I'm not sure I'm following. Can you elaborate what you would do?

comment How can this formula be analyzed intuitively?
Sure, brute forcing it is feasible. But say I had 20 terms, would it still be possible? I just thought, maybe I'm missing something obvious.

comment Paraphrasing speed and heat capacity
I edited the question to be more explicit and stated the motivation for it as requested. Downvote should not be justified now and Hold could be relieved now.
