. Specific heat capacity of a substance


Specific heat capacity of a substance A is 3.8 J g-1 K-1 and of substance B is 0.4 J g-1 k-1. Which substance is a good conductor of heat? How did you arrive at your conclusion?

 

Best Answer

The specific heat capacity of a substance B is lower than that of A. So, the rise in temperature for B will be more than that of A for same mass and same heat energy. Less is the specific heat capacity of a substance, the better it acts as a good conductor. Thus substance B is a good conductor of heat than the substance A.
