Question

What is the formula to solve for mass in specific heat capacity?

1 Answer

  • Quantity of Heat = Mass x Heat Capacity x Temperature Change 
    This may be shortened to: 
    q = mcΔT 
    where: 
    q = Quantity of heat in Joules (J) m = Mass of the substance in grams (g) c = Specific Heat Capacity (Jg-1) ΔT = Change in Temperature (Δ = This symbol is "delta", which is Greek for "change")
