State two differences between Heat Capacity and Specific Heat Capacity.

Answer:

The difference between the specif heat capacity and heat capacity is listed below.

Specific heat capacity

Heat capacity

Specific heat, Csp, is the amount of heat required to change the heat content of exactly 1 gram of a material by exactly 1°C

The heat capacity of a substance can be defined as the amount of heat required to change its temperature by one degree

The formula of specific heat capacity is given by

Q = C m ?t where

Q is the quantity of heat absorbed by a body, m is mass of the body, ?t is the rise in temperature and

C is the specific heat capacity of a substance depending on the nature of the material of the substance.

The formula for heat capacity is given by

Q=CΔT

Where Q is the heat energy required to bring about a temperature change of ΔT and C is the heat capacity of the system under study.
