Answer:

Specific heat is the amount of heat it takes to raise 1 gram of a substance by 1 °C. So a high specific heat would mean it would take more energy to make the substance heat up.

Explanation:

SH= specific heat
q= heat in Joules
#Delta# T= change in temperature
m= mass in grams

The formula below shows the relationship between specific heat and temperature:

#SH=(q)/(DeltaT×mass)#
