(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

what is the different in term of definition between Heat capacity and Specific heat capacity ?

2. Relevant equations

Q=mΔTC →C=Q/mΔT

3. The attempt at a solution

Specific heat capacity is the amount needed per unit mass of material so is a number independent of the amount of material but Heat capacity deals with an arbitrary amount of material

is this the only different?
