You have a sample an unknown solid You are tasked with determining the specific heat andlatent of them with the data provided from two experiments performed in an isolated apparatus. In the first experiment, 1 kg solid at 25 degrees was added into 2 kilograms of 100-degreecelsius of the water. The solid completely melts and mixture’s temperature stabilizes at 25degrees celsius. In a second experiment, 2 kg of the solid at the melting point is put on 1000watt heating element. It takes 2 minutes to completely melt it.
