#### Specific heat of diamond

## What is the value of specific heat for brick in J kg K?

The specific heat capacity of water at room temperature is 4181 J kg^{–}^{1} K^{–}^{1}, that of copper is 390 J kg^{–}^{1} K^{–}^{1} and that of a typical oil is 2000 J kg^{–}^{1} K^{–}^{1}. Ceramic materials such as concrete or brick have specific heat capacities around 850 J kg^{–}^{1} K^{–}^{1}.

## What material has the highest specific heat?

Liquid water

---|---|

sulphur | 0.73 |

calcium | 0.650 |

## How do I calculate specific heat?

Calculate specific heat as c = Q / (mΔT) . In our example, it will be equal to c = -63,000 J / (5 kg * -3 K) = 4,200 J/(kg·K) . This is the typical heat capacity of water.

## What is specific heat of material?

The heat capacity is an extensive property that describes how much heat energy it takes to raise the temperature of a given system. This quantity is known as the specific heat capacity (or simply, the specific heat), which is the heat capacity per unit mass of a material.

## What is CP and CV?

In thermodynamics, the heat capacity ratio or ratio of specific heat capacities (Cp:Cv) is also known as the adiabatic index. It is the ratio of two specific heat capacities, Cp and Cv is given by: The Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure (Cp)/ Heat capacity at Constant Volume(Cv)

## Why is CP is greater than CV?

The heat capacity at constant pressure CP is greater than the heat capacity at constant volume CV , because when heat is added at constant pressure, the substance expands and work.

## What is the SI unit of specific heat?

Constants and SI Units

Dimension | Name | Standard Units |
---|---|---|

Heat Capacity / Entropy | joule per kelvin | J K^{–}^{1} |

Specific Heat Capacity / Specific Entropy | joule per kilogram kelvin | J kg^{–}^{1} K^{–}^{1} |

Specific Energy | joule per kilogram | J kg^{–}^{1} |

Thermal Conductivity | watt per metre kelvin | W m^{–}^{1} K^{–}^{1} |

## What is the highest heat capacity?

Water has the highest specific heat capacity of any liquid. Specific heat is defined as the amount of heat one gram of a substance must absorb or lose to change its temperature by one degree Celsius. For water, this amount is one calorie, or 4.184 Joules.

## What material has the lowest heat capacity?

Metals such as iron have low specific heat. It doesn’t take much energy to raise their temperature. That’s why a metal spoon heats up quickly when placed in a cup of hot coffee. Sand also has a relatively low specific heat.

## What is the specific heat capacity of steel in J kg C?
