Why does water have a high specific heat?
I am writting an essay for AP biology when I realize I am not entirely sure why water has a high specific heat. I thought for a moment it may be because of its polarity and hydrogen bonds keeping the molecules from moving too much too easily in a sense. I only have one day to do thats . I searched google and all I got were pages saying that water has high specific heat, but not why.
