# Question #962b9

##### 1 Answer

The material/substance property that doesn't depend on mass is the specific heat capacity

#### Explanation:

When one refers to this value, he usually refers to the specific heat capacity, since it's a way of measuring how much heat "fits" in a mass, so it's more like a substance property than a certain situation. The known equation that gives heat

shows that heat depends on mass. However, reversing the equation, one can obtain:

while the equation is true, to say that

The heat capacity of **a system** however, doesn't actually give attention to the mass, yielding:

Where if one wants to link the specific capacity to the mass must take note that:

This holds true for many thermodynamic properties and the **specific** values are used most of the time. Examples are:

Enthalpy

Entropy

Volume
