Unformatted text preview: molar heat capacity is the heat capacity per mole of material. For most materials the molar heat capacity is 25 J/mol K. In order to determine the heat capacity of a substance we not only need to know how much heat is added, but also the conditions under which the heat transfer took place. For gases, adding heat under constant pressure and under constant temperature will lead to very different values of the specific heat capacity....
