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

**Step 1:**Note down the given parameters

**Step 2:**By using this formula, calculate the unknown quantity

Solved problems based on heat capacity are given below:

### 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
