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

Land, because it has lower specific heat capacity.Land, because it has lower heat capacity.

Because it has a lower specific heat capacity than water.

The specific heat capacity of a substance is the amount of energy required to increase the temperature of a said substance 1o K. The capacity is measured in kilojoules divided by kilogram time degrees Kelvin (kJ/Kg k). So, if the specific heat capacity of a substance is high, it requires a very large amount of energy to increase the temperature, and if it has a low specific heat capacity, the required energy will be lower.

land heats faster than water because it has lower specific heat capacity

the specific heat capacity of hals is less then the specific heat capacity of our mouth, so the heat transfer form higher heat to lower heat, so we get coll while eating hals.

The measures of a refrigerator are related to its capacity in liters. There is no standard width. Every manufacturer has different designs, making them higher or lower, which makes the width longer or shorter.

No. They would lose (or absorb) the same amount of heat, but their temperatures would be different.Every liquid has a unique specific heat capacity.The specific heat capacity of a substance is the amount of heat required to heat unit mass (1 kg) of that substance through 1&Acirc;&deg;Celsius.So, liquids with different specific heats would show different change in temperature after losing the same amount of heat.For example, a liquid with a lower specific heat capacity would require lesser heat to change it's temperature while one with a higher specific heat capacity would require more heat.Hence, since the heat lost would be the same, the liquid with a lower specific heat capacity would cool more and have a lower temperature.

no. Mostly, the oil capacity is lower than of water's which is 4.184 J g-1 k-1

More likely; a lower heat capacity means that less energy must be transferred to result in a temperature change. If less energy needs to be removed then it is easier for the surroundings to absorb it and make the lakes freeze.

It has lower molecular wt, it is hygroscopic and has lower purity so it is not used as the primary standard

Objects with a lower specific heat capacity (mass for mass) will raise their temperature the same amount with less energy input.

A negative heat capacity would mean that putting heat into something would lower its temperature, so no, it's not possible.

The standard of living in Greece is high for the most part. Places like Athens and other larger cities the costs are high and so is the standard. There are some cities in Greece that the standard of living is low with lower rent but also lower salary, higher unemployment and lower food cost.
