The specific heat is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of a mass unit of the substance by 1 degree Kelvin.

Example:

The specific heat of water at #20^oC# is #c_p=4182 J/(kgK)#.

This means that to increase the temperature of #1kg# of water from #20^oC# to #21^oC# you have to add #4182J# of energy
