What is Meant by Specific Heat?

In Physics, the specific heat is the important thermodynamics property. It is defined as the amount of heat per unit mass needed to raise the temperature by one degree Celsius. The specific heat value can have a varying range for different substances depending on the extent to which the object absorbs heat. The SI unit of specific heat is Joule per Kelvin and kilogram (J / K kg). Hence, the specific heat formula is given by

Specific Heat = Quantity of heat needed to raise/ (Mass of the substance × Change in temperature)

  1. A 200-g sample of ethanol (C2H5OH) is heated from 20.5°C to 55.5°C. Calculate the
    amount of heat absorbed by the water in kilojoules. (conversion: 1 kJ= 1000 J). How to solve this? What formula should I use?
