What is the heat capacity of water in meta-stable equilibrium?
Dear experts,

I noticed that super-heated water (liquid water with temperature above 100*C) undergoes boiling when pushed outside the meta-stable equilibrium.

I was wondering, is the heat capacity of liquid water above 100*C the same as liquid water with temperature between 0*C and 100*C?

Similarly, for super-cooled liquid water (liquid water with temperature below 0*C), is its heat capacity the same as liquid water with temperature between 0*C and 100*C?

Thank you for your time.ORF

Google gave me literally hundreds of tables and charts. Your answer must vary with temperature, but does not greatly diverge from one.

If these are not what you want, you need to be more specific. Note that if water is superheated or supercooled, it has not undergone a phase transition. By definition.
