Specific Heat 

Specific Heat Capacity

   The specific heat is the amount of heat per unit mass required to raise the temperature by one Kelvin.  The relationship between heat and temperature change is usually expressed in the form shown below where c is the specific heat.  Each substance has it's own specific heat value

  The relationship does not apply if a phase change is encountered, because the heat added or removed during a phase change does not change the temperature.
