What is the constant volume?

An Isochoric process, also called a constant-volume process, an isovolumetric process, or an isometric process, is a thermodynamic process during which the volume of the closed system undergoing such a process remains constant.

Is ideal gas always Monatomic?

The particles forming an ideal gas are thought of as punctiform (point-like), and having no detailed structure. So, the real gases that best approximate this ideal model should be monatomic, and with atoms as small as possible.

Why is the atomicity of Sulphur 8?

For example, in O2, there are 2 atoms of oxygen. Of sulphur is 8, because atomicity is defined as no. of atoms in a stable molecule. Similarly Sulphur occurs in 2 states being S8 and S6. Hence its atomicity is 8.

Is gold a monatomic element?

Some sources cite the different color of the gold from its usual yellow color as evidence of it being monatomic. Any chemist (or alchemist, for that matter) knows gold is a transition metal that forms colored complexes and also assumes different colors as a pure metal as a thin film.
