Definition:Specific heat is the amount ofheatenergyrequired to raise thetemperatureof a body per unit ofmass.

InSIunits, specific heat (symbol: c) is the amount of heat injoulesrequired to raise 1gramof a substance 1Kelvin.
Use the formula

q = mcΔT

where
q = heat energy
m = mass
c = specific heat
ΔT = change in temperature

1.45=2*.798*c
c=.908j/gC
