Some articles on molar, heats, heat, heat capacity, molar heat capacity:

Heat Capacity - Table of Specific Heat Capacities
... See also List of thermal conductivities Note that the especially high molar values, as for paraffin, gasoline, water and ammonia, result from calculating specific heats in terms of moles of molecules ... If specific heat is expressed per mole of atoms for these substances, none of the constant-volume values exceed, to any large extent, the theoretical Dulong-Petit limit of 25 J/(mol┬ĚK) = 3 R per mole of ... has very large molecules and thus a high heat capacity per mole, but as a substance it does not have remarkable heat capacity in terms of volume, mass, or atom-mol ...
Metrology, The Measurement of Heat Capacity - Specific Heat Capacity
... The specific heat capacity of a material on a per mass basis is which in the absence of phase transitions is equivalent to where is the heat capacity of a body made of the material in question, is the mass of the ... Typical processes for which a heat capacity may be defined include isobaric (constant pressure, ) or isochoric (constant volume, ) processes ... The corresponding specific heat capacities are expressed as From the results of the previous section, dividing through by the mass gives the relation ...
Heat Exchanger
... A heat exchanger is a piece of equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another ... The classic example of a heat exchanger is found in an internal combustion engine in which a circulating fluid known as engine coolant flows through radiator coils and air flows past the coils, which ...
Classical And Quantum Conductivity - Conductivity - Flaws in Classical Conductivity
... The molar heat capacity of a metal is expected to be (3/2)R greater than that of insulators, which has a heat capacity of 3R ... In other words, it is expected that the molar heat capacity of metals will be (9/2)R ... The experimentally determined molar heat capacity of metals is close to 3R ...
Theory of Heat Capacity - Diatomic Gas
... Each rotational and translational degree of freedom will contribute R/2 in the total molar heat capacity of the gas ... Each vibrational mode will contribute to the total molar heat capacity, however ... Both the potential and kinetic components will contribute R/2 to the total molar heat capacity of the gas ...

Famous quotes containing the words capacity and/or heat:

    People between twenty and forty are not sympathetic. The child has the capacity to do but it can’t know. It only knows when it is no longer able to do—after forty. Between twenty and forty the will of the child to do gets stronger, more dangerous, but it has not begun to learn to know yet. Since his capacity to do is forced into channels of evil through environment and pressures, man is strong before he is moral. The world’s anguish is caused by people between twenty and forty.
    William Faulkner (1897–1962)

    And oh, I knew, I knew,
    And said out loud, I couldn’t bide the smother
    And heat so close in; but the thought of all
    The woods and town on fire by me, and all
    The town turned out to fight for me that held me.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
