Specific heat is the energy stored in the form of heat per temperature and amount (mass, moles, or volume) and varies depending on composition, temperature, crystalline configuration, and phase (solid, liquid, or gas). For elemental iron it varies from 4.13-10.0 cal/mole K or (in SI units) 309-749 J/kg K. For liquid elemental iron the specific heat capacity is 8.15 cal/mol K or (in SI units) 611 J/kg K.

How do you measure molar heat capacity?

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)

Specific heat of iron?

The correct term is 'specific heat capacity', not 'specific heat', and it is measured in joules per kilogram kelvin in SI. There are lots of sources of information on this topic on the internet, so why not do a search rather than have someone do one for you?
