    I want to know whether density has any effect on the specific heat capacity of metals. Because when we take the same volume of copper and aluminium, aluminium needs more energy than copper to raise the temperature by 1Kelvin.


    Thanks alot :-D

    the density is decieded by temperature
    and the forces between the atoms decied the densoty aswell but the ehat capacity, so id say not really its the forces that decied it

    Thanks for the reply, but when I asked a teacher about this, he mentioned something about the elastic properties of the metal. Anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks alot :-D
