The

It tells us the amount of heat needed to increase (or decrease) the temperature of 1°C for each 1g of the element or substance.

That is, the higher the specific heat of a substance, the greater the amount of heat that must be supplied (or removed) from it for temperature variations to occur.

c = Q/(m.Î”Î¸), c = C/m

(Typically this formula is displayed as Q=m.c.Î”Î¸)

Being:

It can be calculated by the following formula:

C = Q/Î”Î¸

C = m.c

Where,

**specific heat**is a physical property that is related to the heat received and its thermal variation.It tells us the amount of heat needed to increase (or decrease) the temperature of 1°C for each 1g of the element or substance.

That is, the higher the specific heat of a substance, the greater the amount of heat that must be supplied (or removed) from it for temperature variations to occur.

## Formula

We use the following formula to calculate the specific heat of the substances:c = Q/(m.Î”Î¸), c = C/m

(Typically this formula is displayed as Q=m.c.Î”Î¸)

Being:

- c: specific heat (cal/g°C or J/Kg.K)
- Q: amount of heat (lime or J)
- m: mass (g or Kg)
- Î”Î¸: temperature variation (°C or K)
- C: thermal capacity (cal/°C or J/K)

## Unit

### International System (SI)

The specific heat is measured in J/Kg.K (Joule per kilogram and Kelvin).### Conventional

The cal/g.°C unit (calorie per gram and by degree Celsius) is still very common.## Specific Heat Molar

Instead of defining the substance in (kg) or (g), we use the "mol" or number of atoms or molecules.## Thermal Capacity

The thermal capacity is the amount of heat present in a body in relation to the temperature variation suffered by it.It can be calculated by the following formula:

C = Q/Î”Î¸

C = m.c

Where,

- C: thermal capacity (cal/°C or J/K)
- Q: amount of heat (lime or J)
- Î”Î¸: temperature variation (°C or K)
- m: mass (g or Kg)
- c: specific heat (cal/g°C or J/KgK)
