Step 1

The heat capacity, c of substance is given as : help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseAT where, q = heat gained or lost c = specific heat of the substance AT = change in temperature fullscreen
Step 2

Given that, equal amounts of heat are added to equal masses of substances A and B at the same temperature.

But substance B gets hotter, which means that the final temperature of B is more than A, as such, the △T value of B will be more than A.

From the heat capacity formula, it is evident that heat capac...
