Finding the heat capacity can allow you to find the final temperature of a system when a certain amount of heat is provided to it, how much heat is required to raise the temperature of a certain amount of grams or moles of a substance to a specific temperature, and more. The specific heat capacity allows you to work with grams of a substance, while the molar heat capacity allows you to work with moles of a substance. All in all, it can help you find the temperature of a system and/or its surroundings, the amount of heat lost/gained, the amount of substance heated/cooled in a system, etc.
