-  * Heat capacity is weird. Heating up same mass of water and alcohol. Takes more energy to raise water one degree?How? What is temperature anyway? (explained later in book I think or Wikipedia)+  * Heat capacity is weird. I know that when heating up the same mass of water and alcohol, it takes more energy to raise water one degree. But...the amount of "stuff" is the sameSo where is the energy going? What is temperature anyway? (explained later in book I think or Wikipedia)
