Specific heat and thermal diffusivity The specific heat capacity, cp [J/kg·K], of a material is the amount of energy per unit mass necessary to raise the temperature by one Kelvin. It therefore reflects the ability of the material to store thermal energy. For solid materials like paper, specific heat measurement is measured under constant pressure
