November 8 Specific Heat Capacity (c) This is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 kg of material by 1° C. When 1 kg of material is cooled by 1°C it will release its specific heat capacity (c) The specific heat capacity (c) of water is 4200J/kg°C To raise the temperature of 1 kg of water by 1°C, you must add 4200 J of energy. The reverse is also true. If the water is cooled by 1°C it will release the 4200J of energy Heat energy does not disappear. If one object is gaining heat and rising in temperature, another object is dropping in temperature The heat loss of one object will be the heat gain of the other object How Much Heat? The quantity depends on 3 factors

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
