1. For specific heat capacity, what happens if c in e=mcxtheta if theta is starting from different temperatures for example in a salt experiment?

theta isn't it delta? Delta means change in. Rep if helped

yeah its the e=mcdeltatheta but i wanna know what happens to c if temperture is started from different values of temp.
4. Not sure what you mean. c is constant.

You take the difference in temperature i.e temp at start and temp at end its not that difficult.
6. Can different temperatures of water have different values for C.

c is a constant for each material

Δθ is a difference (i.e. change) in temperature

m is the mass

Yes but you do not need to know that for A-level
