# What is Dimensional Formula of Specific heat capacity ?

Posted in Dimensional Formulae | Email This Post |Specific heat capacity is defined as the quantity of heat required to increase the temperature of a unit mass of fluid by one temperature unit.

Mathematically,

Specific heat capacity = Q /m Θ

Where Q= Heat, m = mass and Θ = Temperature

Dimensional formula of Heat(Q) = M^{1}L^{2}T^{-2}

Dimensional formula of mass = M^{1}L^{0}T^{0}

Dimensional formula of Temperature(Θ) = M^{0}L^{0}T^{0}K^{1}

Putting these values in above equation we get,

**Dimensional formula of Specific Heat Capacity = M ^{0}L^{2}T^{-2}K^{-1}**

**SI unit of Specific Heat Capacity is Joule kg-1 K**
