Chapter 19 -2
The ability of a material to absorb heat.
The energy required to increase thetemperature of the material.
heat capacity(J/mol-K)energy input (J/mol)temperature change (K)
Two ways to measure heat capacity:
: Heat capacity at constant pressure.
: Heat capacity at constant volume.
• Specific heat has typical units of
