Hint:Specific heat is defined as the ratio of amount to heat required to raise the temperature of an object by one degree to the amount of heat required to raise the same amount of water to one degree. Specific heat capacity is represented by $\Delta Q = mc\Delta T$ Where $\Delta Q$ is the heat energy, $m$ is the mass of the object or the substance, $c$ is the specific heat and $\Delta T$ is the change in temperature.

Let us know what specific heat is. Specific heat is defined by the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of $1gram$ of a substance to $1^\circ C$. Now we want to know what factors this quantity depends on. The factors are change in temperature, mass of the system, the substance and the phase of the substance.
