A substance that has a low specific heat needs less heat to increase its temperature. In other words under a constant heat flux it will heat or cool more quickly than the higher specific heat substances.

The purest water, is given the value of one (1) or unity. Unity is just a term that unites the number one (1) to a specific item. So that in the future you can relate another substance, to the substance given the value of Unity. Any substance lighter then water, like oil has a lower specific gravity. Any substance heavier then water, has a higher specific gravity. Some oils have a specific gravity of around 0.85 Some heavy substances like strong nitric acid have a specific gravity of around 1.4 Substances do not have to be liquids. They can be solids.

It means that it takes more energy to produce the same increase in temperature in the same amount. For example it takes more energy to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree than it does to do the same with 1 gram of iron. Therefore water has a higher 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.

You need to find out their density. If a substance has a higher density it will sink. And vice versa.

Yes, because it has a high specific heat. it implies that more amount of energy will be required to overcome the intermolecular forces to convert into another state of matter.

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.

No. Water has a higher specific heat than any other common substance.

more because high specific heat is based on the substances hydrogen bonding

Water has a higher specific heat, and this is an intensive property of the substance itself.

All bond will break at high temperature; in another word, bond will not form more quickly in higher temperature but instead it form at low temperature.

Because water has a high specific heat. Waters specific heat is higher than any other common substance.

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

The higher of the temperature of a substance, the more thermal energy it has.

Altitude, the higher the altitude the lower the pressure. Water evaporates more quickly at low pressures

increase in concentration of a pollutant from one link in a food chain to another. Biomagnification is the bioaccumulation of a substance up the food chain by transfer of residues of the substance in smaller organisms that are food for larger organisms in the chain. It generally refers to the sequence of processes that results in higher concentrations in organisms at higher levels in Biomagnification: the food chain (at higher trophic levels). These processes result in an organism having higher concentrations of a substance than is present in the organism's food. Biomagnification can result in higher concentrations of the substance than would be expected if water were the only exposure mechanism. Accumulation of a substance only through contact with water is known as bioconcentration..

The specific heat capacity is the energy density of a substance. Since jam has a higher specific heat capacity than the pie crust it is contained in, this is why the contents of a pie are always much hotter than the pie itself.

osmosis is the passive movement of a substance from a place where its concentration is higher, to another where its concentration is lower. This applies to gases, I guess

A substance with higher specific heat capacity means it has higher heat energy storage but it can hold the heat for certain time depending on the structure, colour, ambient temperature, surface area and so on. For example if you heat substance A ( higher specific Capacity ) and B (lower heat capacity, for 5 hours. Then the amount of heat stored in the substance A will be higher than B. If the surface area is large which would enable the more molecular interaction and it cools down rapidly. While in case of compact object the process can be just opposite. So basically, specific heat capacity can be taken as reservoir , the more the better if you want store the heat for certain time. I am environmental engineering and i have been researching about it.

rubbing alcohol has higher specific heat

The higher the substance's specific heat capacity, the more heat energy is needed to raise it's temperature.

water is the only substance on earth where its density is HIGHER when liquid, and LOWER when solid. a substance will float on top of another if its density is lower than the other substance. so because the ice has a LOWER density it will float on top of the water

It is true that most minerals have a higher specific gravity than water. Water has a specific gravity of 1, while most minerals' specific gravities are higher.
