Also, what is the formula for specific heat capacity?
The units of specific heat capacity are J/(kg °C) or equivalently J/(kg K). The heat capacity and the specific heat are related by C=cm or c=C/m. The mass m, specific heat c, change in temperature ΔT, and heat added (or subtracted) Q are related by the equation: Q=mcΔT.
Similarly, how do you calculate specific heat from molar heat capacity? kg/mol is the SI unit for molar mass. Multiply the specific heat by the molar mass to get the molar specific heat. For example, the molar mass of water is ≈0.018 kg/mol.
In this manner, what is the relation between heat capacity and specific heat capacity?
(1) : Heat Capacity of the substance is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of the substance by 1 o C 1^o C 1oC whereas Specific Heat Capacity is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature by 1 o C 1^o C 1oC of unit mass of substance.
Why is specific heat capacity important?
Specific heat capacity is a measure of the amount of heat energy required to change the temperature of 1 kg of a material by 1 K. Hence it is important as it will give an indication of how much energy will be required to heat or cool an object of a given mass by a given amount.
