Specific Heat Capacity
Specific heat capacity is expressed as a quantity of heat necessary to rise the temperature
of unit mass of the substance by one unit.
TPRL has four different pieces of equipment available for the direct measurement of the specific
heats of materials. Depending on the temperature range needed and the atmosphere conditions
required, either one or the other or sometime both pieces of equipment will be used.
