How is molar heat capacity related to specific heat?

molar heat capacity is the product of specific heat capacity and molecular weight molar heat capacity=specific heat capacity*molecular weight

What is the molar heat capacity of liquid water?

Molar heat capacity of liquid water = 75.3538 Molar heat capacity = molar mass x specific heat

What is the heat capacity of 170 g of liquid water?

heat capacity= specific heat x mass molar heat capacity = specific heat x molar mass - Hope this helps!!

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 units) Molar heat capacity of iron = 0.15*1 cal/(g*C)*55.85 g /gmole = 8.378 cal/(gmole*C)

What is another way to say heat capacity?

Another way of stating this, is that the volume-specific heat capacity (volumetric heat capacity) of solar elements is roughly constant. The molar volume of the solid.

Why gases have two specific heat?

Gasses have two specific heat capacities because the boundary conditions can affect the number by up to 60%. Therefore, a number is given to each boundary condition: isobaric (constant pressure) or isochoric (constant volume). In an ideal gas, they differ by the quantity R (the gas constant - the same one you use in the ideal gas law): Cp = Cv + R where Cp is the isobaric molar heat capacity (specific heat) and Cv is the isochoric molar heat capacity.
