# How does specific heat affect temperature?

It does not!

#### Explanation:

Specific Heat capacity by definition is the quantity of heat (or energy) needed to raise the temperature of $1 g$ of a certain element or compound by ${1}^{\circ} C$.

Therefore, it is independent of temperature and is determined experimentally.

Here is a video that further explains the specific heat capacity and its use:
