**Calorimetry equation**

*“How can we measure the change in energy of an object when it changes temperature?”*

Let’s consider something. We know that temperature is a measure of the average internal kinetic energy of an object. So logically, if there is a change in temperature, there is a change in the energy of an object. But how is it possible to measure this change? Well, luckily for us, Scientists and Engineers have come up with a special relationship relationship known as the **calorimetry equation.** This equation can be represented numerically as q=m*c*t, with q being the **change in energy**, m being the mass of the object, c being the **specific heat capacity **(a constant based on the material), and t being the **change in temperature**.
