## Molar Heat Capacity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Molar Heat Capacity.

MHC = Q / (dT*n)

Variables:

- MHC is the Molar Heat Capacity (J/(C-mol))
- Q is the total heat (J)
- dT is the change in temperature (C)
- n is the number of moles

To calculate the molar heat capacity, divide the total heat by the product of the change in temperature times the number of moles of substance.

## How to Calculate Molar Heat Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Molar Heat Capacity.

- First, determine the total heat (J).
- Next, determine the change in temperature (C).
- Next, determine the number of moles.
- Next, gather the formula from above = MHC = Q / (dT*n).
- Finally, calculate the Molar Heat Capacity.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total heat (J) = 12

change in temperature (C) = 17

number of moles = 94MHC = Q / (dT*n) =** ** ?
