1. Data table of specific heat capacity of common metals

Please find below a table of common metals and their specific heat capacity, aggregated from different sources.

  • Warning 1 : values were not verified individually
  • Warning 2 : The data below are thus only for a 1st reference, quick calculation, but no detail design, no guarantee are given upon them.
As different sources were aggregated, different values can appear for a same material. The difference can come from the temperature at which has been measured the specific heat capacity. Please scroll down, the compounds are sorted alphabetically ; or use the Ctrl+F function to find what you are looking for.
