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.

Volumetric heat capacity | Several units like J m^{-3}K^{-1} |

Energy per mass | Several units like J/kg, cal/g and BTU/lb |

Heat transfer coefficient | Several units like J s^{-1}m^{-2}K^{-1} |

**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^{-1}K^{-1} for the
specific heat capacity of a substance. What is the size of this value
in the common SI unit J kg^{-1}K^{-1}?
Type "0.42" into the field behind which
"Wh kg^{-1}K^{-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^{-1}K^{-1}).
