Heat Calculator

Here is a simple Heat capacity calculator to calculate the heat generated, measured in Joules, using the values of specific heat, mass and change in temperature. The heat capacity is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature by 1 degree. Specific heat refers to the amount of heat required to raise unit mass of a substance's temperature by 1 degree. In the below heat calculator, enter the values for specific heat, mass and change in temperature and click calculate.

Formula:

Q = CpmΔT Where, Q = Heat Cp = Specific Heat m = Mass ΔT = Change in Temperature

Example:

A substance having a specific heat of 8 J/kgoC, mass of 9 gm and change in temperature of 15 C.

Solution:

Heat Capacity = 8 x 9 x 15
= 1.08 J
