How to Convert:Converting specific heat capacity values using the Specific Heat Capacity Unit Converter involves the following steps:

  1. Select Input Unit: Choose the unit of the specific heat capacity value you want to convert from.
  2. Enter Value: Input the numerical value of the specific heat capacity.
  3. Select Output Unit: Choose the desired unit of the specific heat capacity you wish to convert to.
  4. Calculate: The converter will automatically compute the equivalent specific heat capacity value in the chosen unit.

Examples:Let's demonstrate the conversion process with some examples:

  1. Convert 1000 J/(kg*K) to Btu (th)/pound/°F:

    • Input: Specific Heat Capacity = 1000 J/(kg*K)
    • Output: Specific Heat Capacity = 1000 * 0.000238846 * 2.20462 = 0.5264 Btu (th)/pound/°F
  2. Convert 500 Calorie (th)/gram/°C to Joule/kilogram/K:

    • Input: Specific Heat Capacity = 500 Calorie (th)/gram/°C
    • Output: Specific Heat Capacity = (500 / 4.184) * 1000 = 119.455 J/(kg*K)
  3. Convert 300 Btu (IT)/pound/°F to Kilojoule/kilogram/K:

    • Input: Specific Heat Capacity = 300 Btu (IT)/pound/°F
    • Output: Specific Heat Capacity = (300 * 1055.06) / 1000 = 316.518 kJ/(kg*K)
