UNDERSTANDING SPECIFIC HEAT CAPACITY

Definition of Heat Capacity

1. Quantity of heat energy required to raise the temperature of an object by 10C. 2. The unit of heat capacity is J0C-1 3. Beaker A has (greater, same, less) heat capacity than beaker B.

B A

A A

4. This means that the (bigger, smaller) the mass, the (larger, smaller) the amount of heat stored.

Definition of Specific Heat Capacity

1. Quantity of heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kg of a substance by 10C. 2. The unit of specific heat capacity is Jkg-1 0C-1 3. An object with low specific heat capacity can be heated up quickly, as it requires less heat to increase its temperature by 10C. It can be cooled quickly due to little amount of heat stored in it. 4. An object with high specific heat capacity takes longer time to heat up, as it requires more heat to increase its temperature by 10C. It is harder to cool down due to larger amount of heat stored in it.
