Specific heat capacity
The specific heat capacity of a substance is the value of the amount of energy, which is needed to raise the temperatute of one mass unit of this substance by one unit of temperature.
Usage: Type the value to convert into the field, behind which you find the unit. Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button. Read the result in the other fields. Use the "reset" button to reset your calculation. Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name.
Example: In a table you find a value of 0.42 Wh kg-1K-1 for the specific heat capacity of a substance. What is the size of this value in the common SI unit J kg-1K-1? Type "0.42" into the field behind which "Wh kg-1K-1" is written. Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button. Read the result in the other fields (e.g. 1512 J kg-1K-1).
