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

Specific Heat Capacity of Lithium Ion Cells

The specific heat capacity of lithium ion cells is a key parameter to understanding the thermal behaviour. From literature we see the specific heat capacity ranges between 800 and 1100 J/kg.K Heat capacity is a measurable physical quantity equal to the ratio of the heat added to an object to the resulting temperature change. Specific … Read more
