Theory:

Heat capacity or thermal capacity is defined as the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a body by \(1°C\). It is denoted by \(C'\).
It is mathematically represented by,
 
Heatcapacity=QuantityofheatrequiredRaiseintemperatureC"=QT
 
The SI unit of heat capacity is \(J/K\). It is also expressed in \(cal/°C\), \(kcal/°C\) or \(J/°C\).
