How Materials Hold Heat
Lecture no. 12 from the course: Thermodynamics: Four Laws That Move the Universe
Taught by Professor Jeffrey C. Grossman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Learn how different materials vary in their ability to absorb heat. This factor is called heat capacity, and it provides a crucial way to correlate energy flow with temperature. Study the heat capacity of various materials, and see how quantum effects reduce heat capacity at very low temperatures.
