Some articles on specific heat capacity, specific heat, heat, specific, heat capacity:
... This is a table of specific heat capacities by magnitude ... List of orders of magnitude for specific heat capacity Factor Value J·kg·K Item 94 ... Radon 120 Uranium 129 ... Gold 130 Iridium Osmium 139 Mercury 145 Iodine 158 Xenon 240 Caesium ...
... Specific heat capacity, also known simply as specific heat, is the measure of the heat energy required to increase the temperature of a unit quantity ...
... "Specific" generally means per unit of something (often mass), and signals a division of the subject quantity by a parametizing quantity that may or may not be named ... quantity is named, the name is usually placed before "specific" in the term (i.e ... thrust specific fuel consumption) ...
... There are other forms of heat energy besides the kinetic energy of translational motion ... Accordingly, as heat is removed from molecules, both their kinetic temperature (the kinetic energy of translational motion) and their internal temperature simultaneously ... causes substances to contain more heat energy at any given temperature and to absorb additional heat energy for a given temperature increase ...
... inverse correlation between a solid’s density and its specific heat capacity on a per-mass basis ... two factors (constancy of atomic volume and constancy of mole-specific heat capacity) result in a good correlation between the volume of any given solid chemical element and its total heat ... Another way of stating this, is that the volume-specific heat capacity (volumetric heat capacity) of solid elements is roughly a constant ...
Famous quotes containing the words capacity, specific and/or heat:
“People between twenty and forty are not sympathetic. The child has the capacity to do but it cant know. It only knows when it is no longer able to doafter 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 worlds anguish is caused by people between twenty and forty.”
—William Faulkner (18971962)
“In effect, to follow, not to force the public inclination; to give a direction, a form, a technical dress, and a specific sanction, to the general sense of the community, is the true end of legislature.”
—Edmund Burke (17291797)
“I have a blood bolt
and I have made it mine.
With this man I take in hand
his destiny and with this gun
I take in hand the newspapers and
with my heat I will take him.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
