Heat capacity or thermal capacity is the ability of an object to store heat. It is abbreviated to Cth, and its SI units are J/K (joule per kelvin). The concept is further discussed in the article on temperature.
Heat capacity is related to thermal capacitance by the formula
- V = volume (m3)
- ρ = density (kg/m3)
- cp = specific heat (J/kgK) at constant pressure
