q=mCdeltaT vs q=nCdeltaT

When should you use each of these equations, q=mCdeltaT vs q=nCdeltaT? Is it simply based on the units given or needed in the answer?

use q=mCdeltaT when the mass is in grams. use q=nCdeltaT when mass is in moles.

use q=mCdeltaT when you're given the mass and use q=nCdeltaT when you're given the moles
