Calculate the heat capacity of your calorimeter. Note that the temperature change of the calorimeter
is assumed to be the same as the temperature change of the "cool water" in the calorimeter.


Expert Answer

Step 1


Temperature change is same as in cool water.

Step 2

To find the heat capacity of calorimeter:

The heat capacity is given as
