What is the specific heat of a soybean?

The specific heat for whole soybeans is c = 0.39123 + 0.46057 * M
Where M = Moisture content, % dry basis; c = spec heat BTU/lb deg F
Moisture range is from 0 to 37% dry basis

This is from Alam and Shove (1973). Simulation of soybean drying.
Transactions of ASAE. 16(1): 134-136.
