If two different substances, with the same mass (1 gram) absorb the same amount of energy, which of the following can be predicted? The temperature of both substances will increase equal amounts. The temperature of the substance with the lower specific heat will increase more than the one with a higher specific heat. The temperature of the substance with the higher specific heat will increase more than the one with a lower specific heat. Cannot predict without knowing the specific substances.

    If two different substances, with the same mass (1 gram) absorb the same amount of energy "the temperature of the substance with the lower specific heat will increase more than the one with a higher specific heat".

    Option B

    Explanation:

    The thermodynamic function that specifies the amount of heat needed by one degree of temperature for a single unit of mass of a material to be elevated is understood as "Specific heat". Depending on the extent to which they absorb heat, various levels of specific heat values are seen for the materials.

    The heat transferred relies on three factors: temperature change, weight of the device, material change and stage of the material. The average temperature of the molecules increases as the material heats up, so when they collide they are more likely to contribute enough energy to cause rotation and vibration to happen as the energy moves to a higher state.
