Active Standard: E1142 - 14
The purpose of this work item is to assess the discrepancy between ASTM and IUPAC for the sympbols used for Heat Capacity and Specific Heat Capacity. ASTM has designated C as the symbol for specific heat capactity. IUPAC has designated c as the symbol for specific heat capacity and C for heat capacity. I am looking to the membership of this committee to understand the history and to consider revising the ASTM definition to match the IUPAC definition.
