# Specific Heat

Specific heat, abbreviated as c, also called specific heat capacity, is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a material 1 degree.

## Specific Heat formulas

\(\large{ c = \frac {Q } {m \; \Delta T} }\) | |

\(\large{ c = \frac{v^2 } {2 \; Ec \; \triangle T} }\) | (Eckert number) |

### Where:

\(\large{ c }\) = specific heat

\(\large{ Ec }\) = Eckert number

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature change

\(\large{ Q }\) = thermal energy or heat transfer

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity
