Question 8.43 for the 6th edition give the heat capacities of the different states in units of J/mol. Why is this? I thought the definition of heat capacity is the heat required to raise the temperature of an object by one degree. Wouldn't the units have to include degrees celsius or Kelvin?
That's a fair point. However, the question simply asks for you to identify the optimal heating curve based on the heat capacities given (just say that it defines how much the substance can contain before moving on to the next phase).
