Name three factors on which the heat energy absorbed by a body depends and state how does it depend on them.

 

Best Answer

The three factors on which the heat energy absorbed by a body depends are

(i) The mass of the body: The amount of heat energy required is directly proportional to the mass of the object.

(ii) The increase in temperature of the body: The amount of heat energy required is directly proportional to the rise in temperature.

(iii) The material of the body: The amount of heat energy required depends on the substance of the object which is expressed in terms of its specific heat capacity c.
