two bodies of equal masses have different amounts of heat.which of it has greater specific heat?
Asked by | 03 Mar, 2008, 08:11: PM

Heat is the quantity of energy gained or lost by the body. specific heat is a characteristic of a material, it is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of unit mass by 1 degree celsius.

For a particular question, if it is given that different quantity of heat is supplied to equal masses, you can solve as follows.

relation between specific heat and quantity of heat :

Q  = msT

so  if Q 1 , Q2 are the different amounts of heat, and m1 = m2 = m,

Q1 / Q2    =  s1 / s2
