## User Guide

Use this calculator to determine the heat capacity of a substance C=Q/ΔT in joules per kelvin (J/K), joules per degree Celsius (J/°C), kilojoules per kelvin (kJ/K), kilojoules per degree Celsius (kJ/°C), british thermal units per degree Fahrenheit (Btu ISO/°F), british thermal units per degree Rankine (Btu ISO/°R), calories per degree Celsius (cal/°C) or kilocalories per degree Celsius (kcal/°C) units, from the total heat or thermal energy transferred and the resulting change in temperature.

### Formula

The formula used by this calculator to determine the heat capacity from the heat transferred and change in temperature is:

C = Q / ΔT

#### Symbols

- C = Heat capacity
- Q = Heat transferred
- ΔT = Temperature change

### Heat Transferred (Q)

This is the total heat or thermal energy transferred.

### Temperature Change (ΔT)

This is the total change in temperature caused by the transfer of heat.

### Heat Capacity (C)

This is the amount of thermal energy required to raise a substance or material by one unit of temperature.
