### Molar heat capacity of water?

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

### 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)

### What is molar heat?

Different substances have varied molar heat capacities. The molar heat capacity of a substance refers to the amount of heat energy needed to raise 1 mole of that substance by 1 degree Celsius.

### What is the difference in specific heat between hydrogen and oxygen molecules?

The molar heat capacity of hydrogen (H2) is 28,835 J/mol/K.The molar heat capacity of oxygen (O2) is 29,378 J/mol/K.

### What is another way to say heat capacity?

Another way to say heat capacity is thermal capacity.

### What is the heat capacity of 165g of liquid water?

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

### What quantity must the heat capacity of an object be divided to obtain the specific heat of that material?

Heat capacity is in the measurement of (kilo)Joules per mol degree Kelvin (J/mol K) Specific heat capacity is in joules/gram degree Kelvin (J/ gram K) Converting between the two is rather simple. To convert to specific heat capacity, divide the molar heat capacity by the molar mass of the molecule in question. eg. ( J/ mol K) / (grams/mol ) = J/ gram K, because mols will cancel.
