# Question #5bf9c

$Q = m s \Delta \theta$

#### Explanation:

The amount of heat absorbed when we supply heat to a body, depends:
1. mass of the body($m$)
2. change in temperature($\Delta \theta$)
3. material of the body
4. pressure(sometimes, the surrounding conditions)
So, it is therefore defined as
$Q = m s \Delta \theta$
Here $Q$ is the heat supplied and '$s$' is a constant called specific heat capacity , for the given material under the given surrounding conditions.
