This video introduces the concept of specific heat capacity. Specific heat capacity (shc) is the change in energy stored in an object or system as its temperature changes.
The energy stored ...in an object as its temperature changes is dependent on three things: the mass, m, of the object, the specific heat capacity, c, of the object and the change in temperature of the object, Δθ.
The equation for the change in energy (ΔE) for an object that has undergone a temperature change (Δθ) is: ΔE = mcΔθ

Syllabus Aims… 5.3 know and use the relationship between density, mass and volume: density = mass / volume ρ = m / V 5.4 practical: investigate density using direct measurements of mass and volume. 5.5 know and use the relationship between pressure, force and area: pressure = force / area p = F / A 5.6 understand that the pressure at a point …
Syllabus Aims… 5.8P explain why heating a system will change the energy stored within the system and raise its temperature or produce changes of state 5.9P describe the changes that occur when a solid melts to form a liquid, and when a liquid evaporates or boils to form a gas 5.10P describe the arrangement and motion of particles …
Syllabus Aims… 5.15 explain how molecules in a gas have a random motion and that they exert a force and hence a pressure on the walls of the container 5.16 understand why there is an absolute zero of temperature which is – 273°C 5.17 describe the Kelvin scale of temperature and be able to convert between the Kelvin …
