    QUESTION: Explain the terms of specific heat capacity and resistivity applied science.
    How would i explain this?????

    Specific Heat Capacity is the amount of energy needed to heat 1kg of substance by 1 kelvin
    Resistivity is the electrical property of a material that determines it's resistance given it's dimensions, more or less how strongly/weakly the material opposes the flow of current. Resistivity is an intrinsic value, meaning it will not change as you change it's physical dimensions, i.e changing the cross sectional area of the wire, it is a true value.
