• Heat - measure of the quantity
or how much energy
• Temperature - measure of the
intensity or how
energetic each
particle is
Temperature Conversion
K = °C + 273
°C = 5/9 (°F – 32)
°F = 9/5 * °C + 32
Density - The amount of mass
per unit volume
Density = Mass
Volume
D=M
V
Specific Gravity
• Numerically the same as density but has no
units. It is still a mass/volume
• It is a comparision to water as the standard
that has a density of 1.00 g/mL at 20 ºC
• If Lead has a density at 20 ºC of 11.35 g/mL
It is 11.35 times more dense than water
• So the specific gravity for Lead is reported
as 11.35
calorie
The amount of heat needed to
raise the temperature of one
gram of liquid water by 1 ºC
1 kcal = 1000 cal
1cal = 4.184 J
1000 cal = 1 C (food calories)
Specific heat
• The amount of heat
(in calories) necessary to raise
the temperature of 1 g of any
substance by 1 ºC.
Amount of heat = Specific heat x mass x
change in temp
Heat = SH x m x (T2 – T1)
