How do you measure specific heat capacity?
Also asked, what is the formula for calculating 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.
Also, what is the formula of specific heat? Specific heat is the amount of heat required to raise one gram of any substance one degree Celsius or Kelvin. The formula for specific heat is the amount of heat absorbed or released = mass x specific heat x change in temperature.
Beside above, what instrument is used to measure specific heat capacity?
How is specific heat capacity measured?
Specific heat capacity is measured by determining how much heat energy is needed to raise one gram of a substance one degree Celsius. The specific heat capacity of water is 4.2 joules per gram per degree Celsius or 1 calorie per gram per degree Celsius.
