This is a study of the heat capacity substances at high temperatures at determined by means of drop-calorimetry. The heat capacity may be defined as the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of a substance by 1o C. This can be expressed as [see PDF file for formula]. The concept of heat capacity is used in connection with a certain defined path such as those of constant volume or constant pressure. The following definitions apply: [see PDF file for formula] = heat capacity at constant volume and [see PDF file for formula] = heat capacity at constant pressure, where E = the internal energy, H = enthalpy and H and E are related by H = E + PV.
