## User Guide

Use this calculator to determine the heat capacity of a substance C=cₘm 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 its specific heat capacity and total mass.

### Formula

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

C = c_{m} · m

#### Symbols

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

### 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.

### Total Mass (m)

This is the total mass of the substance.

### Heat Capacity (C)

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