## User Guide

Use this calculator to determine the specific heat capacity of a substance cₘ = C/m in joules per kilogram per kelvin (J/kg·K), joules per kilogram per degree Celsius (J/kg·°C), joules per gram per kelvin (J/g·K), joules per gram per degree Celsius (J/g·°C), kilojoules per kilogram per kelvin (kJ/kg·K), kilojoules per kilogram per degree Celsius (kJ/kg·°C), british thermal units per pound per degree Fahrenheit (Btu ISO/lb·°F), british thermal units per pound per degree Rankine (Btu ISO/lb·°R), calories per gram per degree Celsius (cal/g·°C) or kilocalories per kilogram per degree Celsius (kcal/kg·°C) units, from its heat capacity and total mass.

### Formula

The formula used by this calculator to determine the specific heat capacity from the heat capacity and total mass is:

c_{m} = C / m

#### Symbols

- c
_{m}= Specific heat capacity - C = Heat capacity
- m = total mass

### Heat Capacity (C)

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

### Total Mass (m)

This is the total mass of the substance.

### Specific Heat Capacity (c_{m})

This is the amount of heat required to raise a substance or material by one unit of mass and one unit of temperature.
