Specific Heat Capacity Conversion

Specific heat capacity is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a particular substance of mass (kilogram, gram, pound) by 1 degree (celsius, fahrenheit, kelvin).

For example, the heat capacity of water is 4.1813 joules/gram kelvin which means the heat energy required to raise the water's temperature by 1 kelvin is 4.1813 joules per gram.

Common units are kilojoule per kilogram celsius, joules per gram kelvin and btu per pound fahrenheit.
