Solution

Specific Heat: The specific heat of a substance is the amount of heat that is required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of the substance by 1°C. Now, if we measure the heat in “joules” and mass in “kilograms”, then the definition of specific heat becomes “The specific heat of a substance is the amount of heat in joules required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of the substance by 1°C”.

if 2000 J of heat is required to melt 40 Kg of substance, then the specific latent heat of a substance is Heat(joule)Massofsubstance(Kilogram)=2000J40Kg=50Jkg

2000J of heat is required to melt of 40kgsubstance, then the specific latent heat of a substance is 50Jkg-1
