Since heat capacity and specific heat capacity are one calculation apart, when asked about heat capacity in a question should we assume they're asking about specific heat capacity? Will normal heat capacity ever be asked about?
I think it would depend on the information the question gave you. I'm guessing that if it gave you the amounts of substances in moles they would wan the answer in the form of specific heat capacity (kJ*(degrees C)-1*g-1).
This honestly depends on the question being asked. Given units and a period table, you should be able to know whether to convert or not to match the question. Just read carefully and fully understand what's being asked for and how you will get there.
