Physics - Unit Conversion
posted by Brenda .
I am trying to calculate heat transfer between two objects. The units are as follows:
specific heat: cal/gm degree celsius
temperature: degree celcius
My numbers aren't working out and I know how to do the problem. So, what's the deal with the gm. Is that gram mass or another abbreviation for gram? Either way, gram mass for a solid or liquid is the same as grams??
