A body's heat capacity (symbol C) is defined as the ratio of the amount of heat energy transferred to the object and the resulting increase in temperature of the object,
C = Q/ delta T , where Q is the heat energy transferred and 'delta T' is the change in temperature.

According to SI, the unite of Q is in Joules and the unite of change in temperature in expressed in Kelvin. Therefore, Heat Capacity is measured in "Joules per Kelvin"
