Thermal capacity of a body depends on the
- mass of the body only
- mass and shape of the body only
- density of the body
- mass, shape and temperature of the body
The heat capacity of a body is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of the body by one degree. It is measured in J/K and depends on the mass.
The specific heat capacity is designed to eliminate mass as a factor by dividing by mass, so it depends only on the material the object is made of. It is measured in units of J/kg K.
The correct option is A.
