How can I find the specific heat of Normal Saline 0.9% ?

  1. I have to use this specific heat value to calculate the heat load for designing a machine as refrigerator.
    Could you please help me to find accurate value.

    ps. This normal saline is used for medication.

    It is within a few percent of pure water specific heat, won't it be enough?
     
  4. Thank you for your attention,Borek.
    You mean that I can use the specific heat of Normal Saline as equal as the specific heat of pure water.
    and I've seen some website told like this,too. I found some results told that the properties is as same as pure water such as boiling point,melting point,..but
    It's necessary to have a evidence to support this issue for my graduating bachelor degree's project.
    please,help.
