From my opinion ...thermal capacity or heat capacity is defined as quantity ofheat required to raise the temperature of the system from lower temperature to higher divided by temperature difference(1 Celsius ) . specific heat -all abv sm n when mass of system is one gram.. so in this by 1c temperature ..so thermal capacity
