# The molar specific heat capacity of chromium at room temperature is 24 j/k mol and its atomic mass is 52g what is specific heat capacity of chromium?

Aug 14, 2018

$\text{0.46 J/(g K)}$

#### Explanation:

• Specific Heat capacity: Amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 kg substance by 1°C. Units: J/(g K)
• Molar Heat capacity: Amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mol substance by 1°C. Units: J/(mol K)

They’re related as...

$\text{Specific Heat capacity" = "Molar Heat capacity"/"Molar mass}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{Specific Heat capacity") = ("24 J / (K" cancel"mol"")") /("52 g"//cancel"mol}}$

color(white)("Specific Heat capacity") = 0.46\ "J/(g K)"
