# What is the specific heat capacity of glucose?

The specific heat of glucose in thermodynamic data table is as 115 J/K.

### How do you get molar heat capacity from specific heat?

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…

### What is a penny's specific heat capacity?

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.
