The value of heat capacities!
Posted: Tue Feb 10, 2015 9:21 am
Just a general question, could the value of heat capacities every be negative? For example, if we were to find the value of the specific heat capacity, and were given q = -1000 joules, mass = 100 grams, and change in temperature is +100 degrees celsius. The resulting specific heat capacity would be negative. Is this possible?
