specific heats of the samples compare with the specific heat of water

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.

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.

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

Water is an example of unusually high specific heat. XP

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

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)
