Specific Heat Capacity Conversion


Specific Heat Capacity Units

The specific heat capacity units in the specific heat capacity converter are BTU/pound °C, BTU/pound °F, BTU/pound °R, calorie/gram °C, calorie/gram °F, CHU/pound °C, joule/gram °C, joule/kilogram °C, joule/kilogram K, kilocalorie/kilogram °C, kilojoule/kilogram °C, kilojoule/kilogram K.

The most common heat capacity units are kilojoule per kilogram celsius (kJ/kg°C), joules per gram celsius (J/g°C) and btu per pound fahrenheit.

What is Specific Heat Capacity?

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 4186 joules/kilogram celsius. It means that the heat energy required to raise the water's temperature by 1 celsius is 4186 joules per kilogram.
