Textbook Problem

The molar heat capacity of mercury is 28.1 J/mol · K What is the specific heat capacity of this metal in J/g · K?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Specific heat capacity of mercury in J/g.K has to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Specific heat capacity is the heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1gm of substance by 1K.

Molar Heat capacity is the heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1mol of substance by 1K.

Explanation

Given, molar heat capacity of mercury =28.1JK/mol

Molar mass of mercury =200.59g/mol

Specific heat capacity = molar heat capacitymolar mass.

Substitute the values in the above equation
