How to calculate specific heat capacity? Watch

1. In a balloon, given that the density of air (1.2gdm^-3) and airs specific heat capacity being 1.00J^-1K^1. The volume of air is 1 dm^-3.

I know E = mct

so

c = E/mt ?

But then what is t and E?

What's in the bold? It seems the specific heat capacity is given. . .
