Heat Capacity Calculator

Top
Heat capacity calculator is used for the calculation of heat capacity of a given substance. Heat capacity is nothing but the heat required to increase the temperature of a substance by one degree. The formula to calculate heat capacity is,

C = m$\times$ s

Where m is the mass of the substance
           s is the specific heat

Solved Examples

Question 1: Calculate the heat capacity of  2 kg water whose specific heat is given as 4200J/kg°C?
Solution:
 
Given that,
 m = 2 kg, s = 4200J/kg°C
Heat capacity is given as,
C = m$\times$ s
C = 2 $\times$ 4200 = 8400J/°C
 

Question 2: Heat capacity of a 5 kg substance is 5400 J/°C, calculate its specific heat?
Solution:
 
Given that,
 m = 5 kg, C = 5400J/°C
Heat capacity is given as,
C = m$\times$ s

s = $\frac{C}{m}$

s = $\frac{5400}{5}$ = 1080J/kg°C
