What is the specific heat capacity of steam in J kg C?

1.996 kJ/kgK
The specific heat capacity, or the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of a specific substance in a specific form one degree Celsius, for water is 4.187 kJ/kgK, for ice 2.108 kJ/kgK, and for water vapor (steam) 1.996 kJ/kgK.

### Why does steel have different specific heat?

The heavier elements contain fewer atoms to absorb the energy per gram of material and therefore tend to have lower specific heat capacities.

### What is the specific heat of iron in joules?

0.44 J/g K
Specific heat of Iron is 0.44 J/g K.

What is the specific heat of sea water in J kg K?

about 3850 J/(kg C)
The density of seawater is about 1025 kg/m^3 and the specific heat is about 3850 J/(kg C).

## Do all metals have the same specific heat?

All metals have the same specific heat capacity.

## How do you find the specific heat of a metal?

Use Q = sm∆T to determine the heat capacity of the metal. (Make sure to use the heat given off by the metal, the mass of the metal, and the temperature change of the metal in this calculation.)

What heats up faster aluminum or steel?

Aluminum did conduct heat the fastest; steel appeared to be the slowest.

### What metal cools the fastest?

What this means is that that the metal acts to cool temperatures, through a process of dissipation. The metals with the highest thermal conductivity are copper and aluminium. The lowest are steel and bronze.

### What is specific heat of iron?
