Specific Heat Capacity (GCSE PHYSICS AQA HIGHER)

HideShow resource information

Specific heat capacity tells you how much energy things can store.

It takes more heat energy to increase the temperature of some materials than others.

Materials which need to gain lots of energy to warm up also release a lot of energy when they cool down.

Specific heat capacity is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1kg of a substance by 1
