ASTM WK42153

    Work Item: ASTM WK42153 - Revision of E1142 - 12 Standard Terminology Relating to Thermophysical Properties

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1142 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: E37.03 | Committee E37 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    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.
