Adding heat to a substance changes its temperature in accordance to
change in heat

moles of substance

molar heat capacity

change in temperature

At constant volume, .

At constant pressure, .

For an ideal gas, where the ideal gas constant.

For an incompressible substance, .

In adiabatic compression () of an ideal gas, stays constant, where . An excellent derivation of this can be found here.
