What is the specific heat capacity of glucose?
The specific heat of glucose in thermodynamic data table is as 115 J/K.
Specific heat is the heat capacity divided by the heat capacity of water, which makes it dimensionless. To obtain molar heat capacity from specific heat for a material of interest, simply multiply the specific heat by the heat capacity of water per gram [1 cal/(g*C)]and multiply by the molecular weight of the substance of interest. For example, to obtain the molar heat capacity of iron Specific heat of iron = 0.15 (note there are no…
Specific heat capacity is heat capacity per unit mass. So it depends on the exact alloy composity of your penny, and not on its size. In a typical US post-1962 penny, the specific heat capacity is about .39 kJ/kgK In a US penny from 1864-1962, the specific heat capacity would be a little less than this. The same was true from 1837-1857. From 1793-1837, the specific heat capacity was about .39 kJ/kgK.
