How do you measure heat?

Measurement of heat is done in calories. One calorie is the amount of energy required to raise one gram of water one degree Celsius. To measure heat, you divide the change in temperature of a sample of water by the mass of the water.

Keeping this in view, what is the instrument used to measure the specific heat capacity?

Specific Heat Capacity (Cp) – Specific Heat measurements form the basis for many tests, including Diffusivity, Emissivity, and Effusivity. Specific heat is measured using a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC). PMIC uses a TA Instruments 2920 MDSC. Testing is performed according to ASTM E1269.

What is the tool used to measure temperature?

One of the most common devices for measuring temperature is the glass thermometer. This consists of a glass tube filled with mercury or some other liquid, which acts as the working fluid.
