## Why do metals heat up so fast?

I'd expect

**metals**to cool**faster**through convection because of a related**heat**property of theirs: conduction.**Metals**are generally good**heat**conductors so as**heat**energy is removed from the surface of the**metal**by air, internal**heat**energy in the**metal**can quickly flow to the surface.10

## What is the specific heat capacity of steam?

The specific heat capacity, or the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of a specific substance in a specific form one degree Celsius, for water is

**4.187**kJ/kgK, for ice**2.108**kJ/kgK, and for water vapor (steam)**1.996**kJ/kgK.11

## Can you get a negative specific heat?

When the mass of substance is multiplied with the

**specific heat**the product is equal to**heat**capacity, which is donated as (C).**Heat**capacity, C,**can**never be**negative**for a mass or a substance and the**specific heat**of a substance**can**never be**negative**.15

## What is the symbol for the specific heat?

The proportionality constant is the

**specific heat**. The**specific heat**of a material is the amount of**heat**required to raise 1 kg of the material by 1°C. The**symbol**for**specific heat**is c. The**specific heat**measures how much energy is stored in a heated object.16

## What is the formula for specific heat?

## Can the specific heat be used to identify a substance?

**Specific heat**is an intensive property (like density, color, etc.) that does not depend on the amount of a

**substance**present. This allows

**substances**to be identified using their

**specific heat**. Imagine an unknown metal of known mass is heated to a known temperature.
