# How does the phase of water affect it specific heat capacity?

###### Wiki User

Typical heat capacities are (exact values depend on temperature):

Solid (Ice): 2.108 kJ/kg·K

Liquid (water): 4.187 kJ/kg·K

Gas (water vapor/steam): 1.996 kJ/-kg·K

In comparison - you can see that liquid water has a higher heat capacity that ice or steam.

The specific heat capacity of water does not change much within-phase (ie, as a solid it has one specific heat capacity, as a liquid/gas it has another)

Yes due to something called 'specific heat capacity', this is basically that the more water there is, the hotter it can get.

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

At 20&Acirc;&deg;C the specific heat capacity of water is 4.183 J/g &Acirc;&deg;C or 4.183 J/gK.

In coastal regions, much of the suns heat is absorbed by water. The high specific capacity keeps the water from increasing temperature and keeps the air cool.

Close to that of water but the carbon dioxide bubbles will lower the specific heat capacity somewhat

They will be the same because the molecular structure of the tea is the same as the molecular structure of water. The added tea to water does not affect the molecular structure of water.

Water has a MUCH higher specific heat than hydrogen.

The one cools quickly should have low specific heat capacity. Aluminium having less specific heat capacity cools faster than water of same mass because water has comparatively high specific heat capacity

Imagine 1 kg of water. This has a heat capacity. Now if you have 1000kg of water the heat capacity is obviously greater. The Specific Heat Capacity is a material constant. It specifies a set quantity. For water it is 4.184 kiloJoules per kilogram per Kelvin.

Molar heat capacity of liquid water = 75.3538 Molar heat capacity = molar mass x specific heat

It would depend on the cooncentration of the sugar in the water.

the specific heat capacity of water is 4200 J / kg &deg;C

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.

A common substance with a high specific heat is water. There are a few substances that have a higher heat capacity than water, though, such as lithium and ammonia.

heat capacity= specific heat x mass molar heat capacity = specific heat x molar mass - Hope this helps!!

Looking for the same thing i can only hazard a guess that it will be close to that of pure water and it would vary from region to region. The specific heat capacity of water is 4.18 J/(g x &deg;C).

water has it's highest specific heat in it's liquid state at 4.184 J/g-K

because it consists of water in its nature has abnormally high heat capacity.

The Specific Heat Capacity of water is 4,184 Joules per kg per Kelvin
