For a solid with a small expansion coefficient,
For solids which have a small expansion coefficient, the work done on the solid is pretty small. Hence, the specific heat at constant pressure and at a constant volume only slightly different since the work done depends very little on the process. Hence, Cp is slightly greater than Cv but much less than R as in the case of ideal gases.
