Q = m*c*ΔT

- Where Q is the thermal energy (J)
- m is the mass
- c is the specific heat
- ΔT is the change in temperature

## Thermal Energy Definition

A thermal energy is defined as the total energy contained within heat.

## Thermal Energy Example

How to calculate thermal energy?

**First, determine the mass.**Measure the mass of the object, typically in units of kilograms.

**Next, determine the specific heat.**Look up the specific heat of the object.

**Next, determine the change in temperature.**Measure the absolute change in temperature of the object over a given time period.

**Finally, calculate the thermal energy.**Using the formula above, calculate the thermal energy.
