Re: what is the specific heat of water?

Why don't you look it up yourself in a specific heat table? I admit that w (in water) is towards the end of the alphabet, so you have to scroll a lot, still I can't see why don't you do it alone. And of course you can use online converters.

The specific heat is the amount of heat per unit mass required to raise the temperature by one degree Celsius.
