Heat Capacity and molar mass

Postby kshalbi » Sat Jan 23, 2016 5:02 pm

Do molecules with a greater molar mass have higher heat capacities than those with less mass?

Greater heat capacities don't necessarily depend on molar mass but on the molar complexity of a molecule. The more atoms that are present in a molecule, the more bond vibrations there are to absorb added energy.
