What does the C stand for in the specific heat formula?

This means to heat one gram of water by one degree Celsius, it would require 4.18 joules of energy. s = specific heat capacity (sometimes represented by the letter c, or Cs) q = heat. m = mass. Δ T = change in temperature.

Accordingly, what is the C in Q MCT?

Q = heat energy ; m = mass, c = specific heat, delta T = the change in temperature. To determine the change in temperature, we'll just have to divide the given formula by the product m*c, both sides: Delta T = Q/mc.

What is Q in Q MCT?

The unit for the thermal energy Q must be Joules; for the mass, kilograms, and for the temperature T, Kelvin. That makes the unit for the specific heat Joules/kilogram/Kelvin or J/kg/K.
