## What is the specific heat of solid?

In other words specific heat of a solid or liquid is the amount of heat that raises the temperature of a unit mass of the solid through 1° C. We symbolise it as C. In S.I unit, it is the amount of heat that raises the temperature of 1 kg of solid or liquid through 1K.

## What solid has the highest specific heat?

Originally Answered: Which substance has highest heat capacity? You can look this up in many engineering tables. For elements: The lower the atomic number the higher the heat capacity in Joules/gram/degree Kelvin. Hydrogen is the winner with 14.304 followed by Helium with 5.193.

**What material has highest specific heat?**

Liquid water has one of the highest specific heat capacities among common substances, about 4184 J⋅kg−1⋅K−1 at 20 °C; but that of ice, just below 0 °C, is only 2093 J⋅kg−1⋅K−1. The specific heat capacities of iron, granite, and hydrogen gas are about 449 J⋅kg−1⋅K−1, 790 J⋅kg−1⋅K−1, and 14300 J⋅kg−1⋅K−1, respectively.

### Is specific heat the same for all solids?

The specific heat of these solids exceeds that of the Debye prediction, even if they are electrical insulators, notably at the lowest temperatures; below 1 K, it varies approximately linearly with the temperature and has almost the same magnitude (to within a factor of 10) in all amorphous solids.

### How do you find the specific heat capacity of a solid?

The specific heat capacity is the heat or energy required to change one unit mass of a substance of a constant volume by 1 °C. The formula is Cv = Q / (ΔT ⨉ m) .

**What is specific heat and molar specific heat?**

Specific heat is defined as the heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of the substance by one degree (K or C). Molar heat is defined as the heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 Mole of the substance by one degree (K or C).

## What is the specific heat of olive oil?

2.0 J/(g)

The specific heat of extra-virgin olive oil is 2.0 J/(g) (∘C), while the specific heat of water is 4.18J/(g) (∘C). Compared to water, olive oil has a low specific heat.

## What has a low specific heat?

Metals such as iron have low specific heat. It doesn’t take much energy to raise their temperature. That’s why a metal spoon heats up quickly when placed in a cup of hot coffee. Sand also has a relatively low specific heat.

**What has a specific heat of 1?**

For example, the specific heat of water is 1 calorie (or 4.186 joules) per gram per Celsius degree.

### What is specific latent heat?

Specific latent heat is the amount of energy required to change the state of 1 kilogram (kg) of a material without changing its temperature.

### What does a Joulemeter measure?

A joulemeter is an electronic device used to measure the energy transfer by electricity in a circuit.
