**03-14-08un** | Title | **Solution map for finding the heat capacity** | Caption | The property of heat capacity relates the amount of heat gained or lost by a sample to the temperature change experienced by the sample. We can solve for the heat capacity, C, by rearranging the formula shown: C = q/mDT. | Notes | Note that DT is the change in temperature, q is the heat, m is the mass, and C is the heat capacity. For the equation to work, the heat capacity must contain the same units as heat, mass, and DT. | Keywords | heat capacity, temperature, heat, energy, mass, Celsius, calorie, joule, gram | |
