The unit of specific heat capacity isn't joules, it's actually joules *per kilogram-kelvin* (which is the same as per kilogram-degree Celsius). Specific heat capacity is the amount of energy (in joules) it takes to raise the temperature of 1 kg of a substance by one Kelvin, or one degree Celsius. Is there any information indicating how many kg of salt water there are in the ocean?
