Full quote The SI unit of volumetric heat capacity is joule per kelvin per cubic meter, J/K/m3 or J/(K·m3). URL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volumetric_heat_capacity Next snippet The volumetric heat capacity can also be expressed as the specific heat capacity (heat capacity per unit of mass, in J/K/kg) times the density of the substance (in kg/L, or g/mL).

Informally, it is the amount of energy that must be added, in the form of heat, to one unit of volume of the material in order to cause an increase of one unit in its temperature. Related snippets (backlinks) The volumetric heat capacity can also be expressed as the specific heat capacity (heat capacity per unit of mass, in J/K/kg) times the density of the substance (in kg/L, or g/mL). The enthalpy of vaporization (symbol ∆Hvap), also known as the (latent) heat of vaporization or heat of evaporation, is the amount of energy (enthalpy) that must be added to a liquid substance to transform a quantity of that substance into a gas. The enthalpy of vaporization is a function of the pressure at which that transformation takes place. The enthalpy of vaporization is often quoted for the normal boiling temperature of the substance. The enthalpy of vaporization of Water at 100 deg C = 2257 (J/g) Visit also Visit also (backlinks) Flags
