Einstein's theory of specific heat
negare-ye garmâ-ye âbize-ye Einstein
Fr.: théorie de la chaleur spécifique d'Einstein
Same as → Einstein model.
Fr.: chaleur spécifique
1) The quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gm of
a substance through 1 °C. More generally, the → heat capacity
of a unit mass of a substance. For a homogeneous body it is expressed as:
C = dQ/M dT, where dQ is the quantity of heat transferred to a
mass of M to raise the temperature by dT. It is often convenient
to use the gram-mole as a unit of mass, → molar heat capacity.
