Capacity for heat


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Capacity for heat etc. See under Animal Blood, etc.
    • Capacity for heat the power of absorbing heat. Substances differ in the amount of heat requisite to raise them a given number of thermometric degrees, and this difference is the measure of, or depends upon, what is called their capacity for heat. See Specific heat, under Heat.

In science:

In contrast to the work of both Br¨uhwiler et al. who studied an x=0.7 sample and Ando et al. who have reported on heat capacity data for NaCo2O4 we observe no upturn in C/T at low temperature.
Investigation of the Spin Density Wave in NaxCoO2
While the low B data can be understood based on the 2DES electronic heat capacity and its oscillating density of states at the Fermi energy, the high B data near ν = 1 are unexpected and cannot be accounted for based on the thermodynamic properties of the 2DES alone.
Flatland Electrons in High Magnetic Fields
Figure 12: Temperature dependence of the heat capacity near filling factor one (ν = 0.81) is shown in the main figure in a log-log plot for a multiple-quantum-well GaAs sample.

Thus Ga31 has a well defined peak in the heat capacity whereas the heat capacity for Ga30 is rather flat.
Magic Melters' Have Geometrical Origin
For a small black hole, r+ ≪ ℓ, the thermodynamic properties are qualitatively similar to those of an asymptotically flat Schwarzschild black hole, i.e., the temperature decreases with increasing r+ so the heat capacity of the hole is negative (as r+ is a monotonic function of µ).

As an illustration, the temperature dependence of the energy hE i and the associated heat capacity defined through CV = ∂ hE i/∂ T obtained with FT-BCS (dashed line) and FT-PAV (dotted line) are compared to the exact result (thick line) in figure 1 for N = 10 particles.

From top to bottom, the energy hH i, the entropy, the heat capacity and the average gap obtained with the FT-VAP (filled circles) are compared to the exact (thick line) and FT-BCS case (dashed line) for a system of N = 10 particles.
Thermodynamics of small superconductors with fixed particle number
When the original plan was proposed for a cavity test facility in MDB, the need for precise dynamic heat load measurements was not addressed. The warm vacuum pump skid had a flowmeter installed on the discharge header, but the flowmeter was sized based on pump capacity and not based on cavity testing needs.
