What exactly is the difference between specific heat capacity and molar heat capacity?

Specific heat is in terms of grams while molar heat is in terms of moles. Specific heat is the heat capacity divided by mass in grams while molar heat is heat capacity divided by the moles.

Molar heat capacity is heat needed to raise 1 mol of a substance by 1 kelvin. Specific heat capacity is the heat needed to raise 1 gram (or any unit mass) of a substance by 1 Kelvin.
