Integral specific heat
 
Hi all,

Is anyone familiar with the term "integral specific heat". Is it a known moniker for some kind of temperature averaged quantity or something? Our code (WAVE) defines Cp as {H(T+delta)-H(T-delta)}/2.delta, where H is a function of temperature and composition and composition is also a function of temperature. In our case, would "integral specific heat" be something like: {H(T)-H(0)}/T?

Thanks,

Steve
