Heat capacity

Postby Madelyn Cearlock » Fri Feb 08, 2019 5:15 pm

when would be the appropriate time to use the simple heat capacity equation instead of specific/molar?

Hi Madelyn!

Using just heat capacity would apply to a system like a calorimeter. Using specific capacity would apply to specific substances or elements.

Hope that helps!
