specific heat capacity


Specificheat capacity

More energy needs to be transferred to the thermal energy store of some materials to increase their temperature than others

Materials that need to gain lots of energy in their thermal energy stores to warm up also transfer loads of energy when they cool down again

Specific heat capacity is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1kg by 1 degree.
