QUESTION

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.
