# What are the units of specific heat?

##J/(g*C)## where ##J## is joules, ##g## is grams and ##C## is degrees Celsius.

If you're referring to capacity, known more commonly as ##c## in formulas such ##q=mcDeltaT##, the unit is ##J/(g*C)## where ##J## is joules, ##g## is grams and ##C## is degrees Celsius.

An example of a common specific heat capacity in thermochemistry is ##4.18J/(g*C)## which is the specific heat capacity for water. This means it requires ##4.18## joules to raise a gram (or a mL) of water up one degree Celsius.
