Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The changes in specific heat capacity of metal upon spillage of Water being added to the calorimeter has to be identified.

Concept Introduction:

  • Calorimetry can be defined as the measurement of changes in heat.
  • Two types of Calorimetry are coffee cup calorimeter and bomb calorimeter.
  • The change in heat of the system can be determined with the value of the heat capacity of the calorimeter.
  • The heat capacity of the calorimeter can be given as,

Ccal=qcalΔT

Specific heat capacity:

Specific heat can be defined as quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1g substance by 1°C. The relationship between heat and change in temperature can be expressed by the equation given below.

q=smΔT

Where,

q= Heat added

s= Specific heat

m= Mass

ΔT= Change in temperature.

The unit of specific heat is Jg-1.°C.
