Does the value of specific heat change with phase?
If yes, why so and what are its values for Al in liquid and solid phase.

See this - http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/je60047a035

See this - http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/tables/sphtt.html - at 20°C (293K), the value is about 900 J/kg-K.

Code:
