According to the Energy Constants of water, there are two possible answers. The heat capacity for solid is 2.1 J/goC, or for every 1 gram of solid water given 2.1 Joules of energy, 1 degree will change. The heat capacity for liquid is 4.18J/g oC, or for every 1 gram of liquid water given 4.18 Joules of energy, 1 degree will change.

The amount of energy put in/taken out will change the substance.
