The specific heat, also called specific heat capacity, is the amount of heat per unit mass required to change the temperature by one degree Celsius. Unlike heat capacity or thermal capacity, which is the measurable physical quantity of heat energy required to change the temperature of an object by a given amount. Specific heat is an intensive variable and has units of energy per mass per degree (or energy per number of moles per degree). The SI unit of heat capacity is joule per Kelvin (J/K).
