The higher the specific heat, the harder it is to heat or cool an object right?
Water has a higher specific heat, which makes it harder to heat up than asphalt right?
So what is the elemental combination which yields the highest specific heat and do we use these materials as shields?
Also, I remember how salt lowers the freezing point of water from 32 degrees fahrenheit to something lower.
What would happen if the specific heat of the planet mars was raised and the freezing point of water was lowered?
