Heat Capacity (Thermodynamics)

The quantity of heat require to raise the temperature of any substance by 1°C is called as heat capacity of that substance and is denoted as ‘C’.

Heat capacity = Heat absorbed / Temperature difference

Unit of C = calorie / °C

Specific heat capacity = Heat absorbed / (Temperature difference × weight of substance in gram)

Unit of specific C = calorie / °C gram

Molar heat capacity = Heat absorbed / (Temperature difference × molar weight of substance)

Unit of molar C = calorie / °C mole © 2017 | Contact us | Terms of Use | Privacy Policy | Yellow Sparks Network
