Water has a much higher specific heat than most other covalent compounds. What do you predict might happen if water had a low specific heat instead?

    Specific heat is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of unit mass by one-degree celcius. Although Water has much higher specific heat than most other covalent compounds if it has a low specific heat than organisms who depend on water and at the same time sensitive to temperature variations are likely to be largely affected by low specific heat.

    Low specific heat means that it will be easier to heat or cool the water by applying minimal heat.
