Units for Ccal?

Postby aisteles1G » Sat Feb 09, 2019 7:43 am

In the solutions manual it uses J/celsius but would it be wrong to use J/kelvin? Basically would we get marked down on the test for switching up the celsius and kelvin? Thanks for any help!

I doubt they would mark you off for switching the signs from K to C but most equations use the value of K for a proper answer and if you use the C value you would get an incorrect answer. So it better to just stick to K.
