Units for Ccal?

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!

Re: Units for Ccal?

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.
