Specific heat capacity of a porous medium

I'm modeling air traveling through a porous medium (fragmented rock).


When I specify the specific heat capacity of the porous medium do I specify just the rock properties or Cp=(MrockCprock+MfluidCpfluid)/(Mrock + Mfluid). It wont make much differance for the plain air run (Cp=790, Cp=790.4) but when I introduce  humidity Cp would jump up to 815.25.
