What is Specific heat capacity?
How hard it is to heat something up.
1 of 5
Why does some materials need more energy to be transferred to the thermal energy store?
To increase their temperature than others and keep warm and also transfer loads of energy when they cool down again. This means they can store a lot of energy.

What is the equation that links energy transferred to specific heat capacity?
Change in thermal energy = mass x specific heat capacity x temperature change
