# Heat Transfer Homework Visit Stack Exchange I have huge vessel filled with \$CH_4\$ and another vessel filled with hydrogen. Assuming the heat transfer coefficients are same, the \$CH_4\$ would cool faster compared to the hydrogen vessel, this is because the hydrogen vessel has larger heat content and takes more time cool to ambient. Yes, it takes more energy (heat is a type of energy) to heat up the substance with the greater heat capacity, all other things (such as \$\Delta T\$, and mass) being equal.Lets assume they have the same mass of gas say kg\$. Since the heat capacity of hydrogen is greater than that of \$CH_4\$ (for \$H_2\$ it is KJ/kg-K\$ and for \$CH_4\$ it is .889KJ/kg-k\$), the amount of heat absorbed to raise the temperature of hydrogen is greater than \$CH_4\$ This is because \$Q=m C_P\Delta T\$ and m and \$\Delta T\$ are same for both \$H_2\$ and \$CH_4\$, \$C_P\$ is higher for hydrogen. If both substances have the same heat transfer coefficient (measured in units of power per unit temperature per unit area), then the one with the greater heat capacity will cool down more slowly, all other things (critically geometry of container) being equal.
