OIL

07/01/2007 7:27 AM

Can any one provide data on Specific Heat (Heat Capacity) of various OILs? I am more interested in ISO 100 or SAE 30 and SAE 20 oils.

Thanks in advance for all replies.

According to my 1975 edition of Eshbach's Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals, specific heat of petroleum is 0.511, gasoline is 0.5, and decane is 0.5. I would assume petroleum products would be in that range.

You could try a Googal search.
