# How is heat capacity related to entropy?

## How is heat capacity related to entropy?

The heat capacity is a material-dependent object that – as you say – measures the difference in temperature when energy is absorbed by the material. The entropy change is proportional to the heat transfer in a reversible process (at constant temperature!

## How do you predict heat capacity?

Calculating an Object’s Heat Capacity. Know the heat capacity formula. Heat Capacity of an object can be calculated by dividing the amount of heat energy supplied (E) by the corresponding change in temperature (T). Our equation is: Heat Capacity = E / T.
