Quantum Physics ?

    What could happened to heat capacity of solid material if Plank's constant value could be 10 times greater. If Some one knows please help me.

    It is always a confusing issue when people want to change a dimensionfull constant, because it is left unspecified what is supposed to vary and what not. It comes more often up with "changing the speed of light" but changing Planck's constant is similar. In the simplest case, you've just re-defined the unit system, and the physics remains the same.
