Recalling Heat Capacity

Prompt

“Write down something you know about heat capacity.”

Context

This SWBQ helps students recall what they can remember about heat capacity and help the instructor assess how much students already know. This SWBQ transitions well into approximating the heat capacity of a substance using the equipartition theorem. Commonly, students only think of finding or using the heat capacity in a thermodynamics course.
