joule per kelvin (J/K) is the unit of thermal capacity in SI unit system.
Thermal capacity, is the measurable physical quantity that characterizes the amount of heat required to change a substance's temperature by a given amount.
we can say that it is the product of mass flow rate of the fluid and its specific heat at constant pressure. (i.e, mCp)

International System of Units (SI), thermal capacity is expressed in units of joules per kelvin.

Thermal Capacity :
Thermal capacity (usually denoted by a capital C, often with subscripts), or heat capacity, is the measurable physical quantity that characterizes the amount of heat required to change a substance's temperature by a given amount.

hi..............
thermal capacity is exp as c
q=mc(dt)
c=q/m(dt)=kcal/kg*k
thermal capacity measured as kcal/kg k
for unit mass it is kcal/k
