Ammonia - Specific Heat at varying Temperature and Pressure

Online calculator, figures and tables showing specific heat, CP and CV, of gasous and liquid ammonia at temperatures ranging from -73 to 425°C (-100 to 800°F) at pressure ranging from 1 to 100 bara (14.5 - 1450 psia) - SI and Imperial Units

Specific heat (C) is the amount of heat required to change the temperature of a mass unit of a substance by one degree.

  • Isobaric specific heat  (Cp) is used for ammonia in a constant pressure (ΔP = 0) system.
  • Isochoric specific heat (Cv) is used for ammonia in a constant-volume, (= isovolumetric or isometric) closed system.

At ambient pressure and temperature the isobaric specific heat, CP, of ammonia is 2.2 [kJ/kg K] or 0.52 [Btu/lb °F] = [cal/g K], while the isochoric specific heat, CV, is 1.6 [kJ/kg K] or 0.39 [Btu/lb °F] = [cal/g K].

However,  the specific heat  - CP and CV - will vary with temperature. This may influence on the accuracy of ammonia conditioning and industrial ammonia handling process calculations. When calculating mass and volume flow of ammonia in heated or cooled systems with high accuracy - the specific heat should be corrected according values in the figures and table below, or found by use of the calculator.

Online Gaseous Ammonia Specific Heat Calculator

The calculator below can be used to estimate the specific heat of gaseous ammonia at constant volum or constant pressure and at given temperature and pressure.
The output specific heat is given as kJ/(kmol*K), kJ/(kg*K), kWh/(kg*K), kcal/(kg*K), Btu(IT)/(mol*°R) and Btu(IT)/(lbm*°R)

Temperature

Choose the actual unit of temperature: °C  °F  °R 
Choose the actual pressure:  1 bara / 14.5 psia; 10 bara / 145 psia; 50 bara / 725 psia; 100 bara / 1450 psia;
