## What is the equation to calculate specific heat?

## Flexi Says: The specific heat of a substance can be used to calculate the temperature change that a given substance will undergo when it is either heated or cooled. The equation that relates heat (*q*) to specific heat (*c*_{p}), mass (*m*), and temperature change (*ΔT*) is:

*q* = *c*_{p} x *m* × *ΔT*
