Comment: specific heat, is always measured against water.

(See in situ)


specific heat, is always measured against water.

specific density is the same
the specific heat of water is 9703 BTU's per LB.(latent heat of vaporization) for ice it is 144 BTU"s per LB. (latent heat of fusion)for the liquid state it is 1.
heat content includes latent heat.(enthalpy)
a calorie and a BTU are the same thing. both measure heat quantity. temperature measures heat concentration.

"jet fuel" is kerosene. I can explain superheat if you would like...
