There are several different types of cooking oil, but the specific heat of vegetable oil is approximately 1.7 joules/g/degree. Compare this to the specific heat of water which is 4.184 joules/g/degree.

i want to compare the storage of heat between the way of using water or using lubricant oil or engine oil

The specific heat of water is 4.186 joule/gram &deg;C.

Water has much higher specific heat than lead. All metals have fairly low specific heat values.

The specific heat value for water is 4.18 J/goC.

Yes, all substances have a specific heat.

With a specific heat of 1 calorie/gram, water has the highest specific heat of any common substance; ammonia is an example of a substance that has a specific heat that is slightly higher than that of water.

The specific heat of water is high. An example of an object with low specific heat would be a metal pan. Since specific heat is the energy needed to raise 1g of something 1 degree Celsius, water would have a high specific heat.

Much lower. Consider water's superior ability to retail heat and compare that with a metal's rapid heat gain. It takes more energy to increase the temperature of water than to heat the metal of pot (as you will no doubt know if you have burned yourself on hot metal).

Water has a much higher capacity for storing energy than most other common materials.

Water has a high specific heat.Water can absorb or release a large quantity of heat energy with little change in temperature because its specific heat is so high. In fact, compared to other common materials, water has a very high specific heat capacity.

Water has a MUCH higher specific heat than hydrogen.

Soil does not have a higher specific heat than water.Specific heat capacity, also known simply as specific heat (Symbol: C or c) is the measure of the heat energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of a substance by one Kelvin (or degree Celsius). Water has a specific heat of 1 calorie / gram / degree C.The specific heat of dry is soil is ~ 0.2 calorie / gram / degree C or ~ 5 times lower than the specific heat of water. The specific heat of moist soil is the weighted average of the water and mineral components of the soil .

That is how specific heat is defined. When you measure something you have to measure it relative to some point of reference. In specific heat it was agreed upon that water was to be the standard and its specific heat would be one. Therefore everything else is measured relative to water.

Water has a high specific heat capacity because of the hydrogen bonding between the water molecules.

The specific heat of water at 20 0C and 100 kPa is 4,1818 J/gK.

about how do soil and water compare in their ability to absorb and release heat

At 25 degrees C, ammonia (NH3) and water have the highest specific heat capacities. Ammonia has a specific heat of 4.700 J/g*K and water has a specific heat of 4.1813 J/g*K.

The specific heat of water is 4.179 Joules per (gram-degree-Celsius).So, the specific heat of 50 grams of water would be: 4.179 J/g-degC * 50 g = 208.95 J/degC
