What are the factors that the amount of heat absorbed or released by a body depends on?
The amount of heat absorbed or released by a body depends on the following factors:
- Mass: The greater the mass of the body, the more heat energy it can absorb or release.
- Temperature Change: The larger the change in temperature experienced by the body, the greater the amount of heat absorbed or released.
- Specific Heat Capacity: Each substance has a specific heat capacity, which represents the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a given mass of the substance by a specific amount.
