The specific heat of both are essentially the same. i.e. it doesn't.
the seawater smells
Fresh water hold heat longer because it has a higher specific heat content.
specific heats of the samples compare with the specific heat of water
Salt water holds more heat than fresh water
Specific heat of sand is less than that of water.
The specific heat of water is 4.186 joule/gram °C.
Fresh off the tree it's just about one (same as water), as it drys out it gets lower.
Water has much higher specific heat than lead. All metals have fairly low specific heat values.
Water has a greater specific heat.
The specific heat value for water is 4.18 J/goC.
There is no fresh water in Antarctica. All the water on the continent is frozen. When heat is applied to it, it becomes fresh, potable water.
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.
Specific heat of water is 1 calory per gram .
Liquid water has the highest specific heat capacity.
The specific heat capacity of water is about 4.18kJ/kg*K while the specific heat of seawater is about 3.95kJ/kg*K Specific heat capacity is a measure of heat required to increase temperature of something by Celsius or Kelvin. Since water's heat capacity is great than that of seawater, then it takes more heat to bring its temperature up
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.
