# Question 362a7

Specific heat capacity is a measurement of how much heat has to be added to or released from a substance to change its temperature. Water has a very high specific heat capacity (4180 J / (kg⋅^oC# ). This means that 4180 J of heat has to be added to 1.0 kg of water to cause the temperature of that kg of that water to increase by ${1}^{o} C$.
