Specific Heat energy Definition: Specific heat capacity is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a body per unit of mass.
In SI units, specific heat capacity (symbol: c) is the amount of heat in joules required to raise 1gram of a substance 1 Kelvin.
Also Known As: specific heat, mass specific heat
Examples: Water has a specific heat capacity of 4.18 J. Copper has a specific heat capacity of 0.39 J
