What is the specific heat capacity of water in J kg C?

4,200 Joules per kilogram

### What does C stand for in Q MC ∆ T?

specific heat

Does oil have a higher heat capacity than water?

For both the hot plate and the microwave, olive oil will heat up faster than water because the heat capacity of oil is lower than the heat capacity of water. Water requires more energy per gram of liquid to change its temperature. These short wavelengths have high frequencies, and therefore high energies.

What is the formula of heat?

The equation for calculating heat energy is q=mCpΔT, where q is the heat variable, m is the mass of the object, Cp is the specific heat constant and ΔT is the temperature change.

## Why is heat capacity of water important?

Specific heat is the amount of energy (in Joules) that is needed to raise the temperature of a substance by one degree Celsius. Water’s high specific heat is very useful to life. If water did not have such a high heat capacity, the temperature of Earth would change violently with the changing of day to night.
