## User Guide

Use this calculator to determine the heat capacity of a substance 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 volumetric heat capacity and total volume.

### Formula

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

C = c_{V} · V

#### Symbols

- C = Heat capacity
- c
_{V}= Volumetric heat capacity - V = Total volume

### Volumetric Heat Capacity (c_{V})

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

### Total Volume (V)

This is the total volume 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.
