Measuring Specific Heat Capacity

specific heat capacity measurement schematic

Specific heat capacity (Cp) is a fundamental physical property that describes the amount of heat required to change the temperature of a substance by a given amount, typically per unit mass. Expressed in units like joules per kilogram per degree Celsius (J/kg°C) or calories per gram per degree Celsius (cal/g°C), it quantifies the thermal inertia … Read more

Thermocouple vs Thermistor

thermistor

Looking at the thermocouple vs thermistor for temperature sensing in the world of battery design. Cell temperature is a critical parameter. Although you might not be able to measure every cell, you need to measure a few in order that you can estimate the maximum and minimum. Thermocouple A thermocouple functions based on the Seebeck … Read more
