The specific heat capacity of a substance is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of the substance unit mass by a unit change in temperature.The general formula is :

Energy = specific heat capacity × mass × change in temperature, OR Q = c m \Delta \theta

For this equation, the units are J for energy; J/(kg°C) for s.h.c. kg for mass and °C for change in temperature.
