determination of specific heat capacity

Specific heat capacity (cp) is a material property describing the energy required to induce a certain change in the temperature of a unit mass of the material. To measure this quantity, a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) may be used. The DSC measures specific heat capacity by heating a sample and measuring the temperature difference between the sample and a reference (ISO 11357-4).
