### Is specific heat capacity in Kelvin?

Specific heat capacity is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of a substance by 1 kelvin (SI unit of specific heat capacity J kg−1 K−1).

**What is specific heat of a calorie?**

The specific heat of a substance is the number of calories needed to raise the temperature of one gram by 1oC. Because one degree on the Celsius scale is equal to one Kelvin, specific heats in the metric system can be reported in units of either cal/g-oC or cal/g-K.

**What is the specific heat capacity of platinum?**

Specific heat of Platinum is 0.13 J/g K. Latent Heat of Fusion of Platinum is 19.6 kJ/mol.

## What is the minimum number of calories we burn each day called?

BMR. Your BMR, also commonly referred to as your your resting metabolic rate (RMR), is the minimum amount of calories needed to run your body’s metabolism based on your body weight. This does not include any energy required for movement and accounts for about 60% or the bulk of your TDEE.

### What is the symbol of specific heat?

cp

The symbol for specific heat is cp, with the p subscript referring to the fact that specific heats are measured at constant pressure. The units for specific heat can either be joules per gram per degree (J/goC) or calories per gram per degree (cal/goC).

**How to calculate the specific heat capacity of a substance?**

The formula for specific heat capacity, C, of a substance with mass m, is C = Q / (m ⨉ ΔT). Where Q is the energy added and ΔT is the change in temperature.

**How is the specific heat of copper calculated?**

Specific heat is measured in BTU / lb °F in imperial units and in J/kg K in SI units. What is the specific heat capacity value of copper? The specific heat of copper is 385 J/kg K. You can use this value to estimate the energy required to heat a 100 g of copper by 5 °C, i.e., Q = m x Cp x ΔT = 0.1 * 385 * 5 = 192.5 J.

## What is the specific heat capacity of aluminum?

What is the specific heat capacity value of aluminum? The specific heat of aluminum is 897 J/kg K. This value is almost 2.3 times of the specific heat of copper. You can use this value to estimate the energy required to heat a 500 g of aluminum by 5 °C, i.e., Q = m x Cp x ΔT = 0.5 * 897* 5 = 2242.5 J.

### What is the heat capacity of one gram of water?

For example, the heat capacity of water is 4.1813 joules/gram kelvin which means the heat energy required to raise the water’s temperature by 1 kelvin is 4.1813 joules per gram.
