Well, i have to things that i've really wanted to know...

1. What substance has the highest specific heat? I'm guessing Hydrogen, but I've heard of others.

and 2. is there a relationship between the fact that the specific heat of water is
4.184 J/g K (Joules per grams Kelvin), and that there is 4.184 Joules in 1 calorie?

2-Yes, because a calorie is, by definition, the amount of energy needed to raise water 1 degree C.

Not sure about 1.

thats what i though; thanks man

its because the energy needed to raise the temp of 1kg water by 1 degree is a calorie

1.) in English please


1.)you mean highest specific heat capacity?


2.) yes

thanks again Dirge Humani, but do you know what solid has the highest specific heat? I googled it but now answers.

yes i meant capacity, but it was already answered

I know that hydrogen bonds in water are what give it such a high specific heat capacity so I'd presume Hydrogen has the highest specific heat capacity because the more hydrogen bonds there are the more energy needed to break those bonds. I could be wrong though.

You should have a textbook with the values listed


If not find an A-level /college text book and look for tables which will have it in

You are wrong..

Hydrogen bonds are between electrons on the Negative oxygen and postive hydrogen


Incedentily, hydrogen bonds do not neccessarily require the presence of hydrogen

Ahh well it was worth a try. Although I did fail AS Chemistry so I don't know why I tried to answer

I believe Lithium is the solid with the highest specific heat.

i im 10 grade, and all i have is a physical science book lol

ill keep looking online

By heat do you mean the amount of heat given off?

If this is what you mean you need to consult a table of Enthalphy values this is the amount of thermodynamic energy absorbed or emitted in a reaction. Heat given out occurs in an exothermic reaction so look for substance with the most negative value. Hope this helps.

We just started with change in temperature through particles, and there was only 4 elements in the chart, and i got really interested in it.
