Chapter 19- 2 General: The ability of a material to absorb heat. Quantitative: The energy required to increase the temperature of the material.    C = dQ dT heat capacity (J/mol-K) energy input (J/mol) temperature change (K) Two ways to measure heat capacity: -- C p : Heat capacity at constant pressure. -- C v : Heat capacity at constant volume. HEAT CAPACITY
