Determination of specific heat Capacity of a solid by electrical method Introduction Thermal conductivity heat is transferred as a consequence of temperature difference between 2 bodies, heat energy passes form a hotter to the colder body. Specific heat capacity is the amount of heat energy required in joules to raise 1kg of a substance by 1 degree Celsius, different substances absorb heat energy at different rates not all substances require the same amount of heat energy to increase the

water, heat transfer occurs. The mass of the metal samples as well as the mass of the water are crucial in this experiment as they are needed to calculate various components of heat exchange. Specific heat is the heat needed to change the temperature of the unit of mass of a given substance by one degree. Hypothesis: The expected outcomes of this lab involve the percent difference from the specific heat capacity garnered from the data that is collected in this experiment to the expected heat capacity

This experiment is an attempt to determine the specific heat of a metal object. The experiment is conducted by first placing two Styrofoam cups inside each other creating a makeshift calorimeter; then filling said calorimeter with ice water measured at zero ° Celsius. Next, a metal object with a mass of 30 grams or more is heated for five minutes in boiling water. After reaching the proper temperature of 100 ° Celsius, the metal is placed in the water. The water is stirred and the temperature

Specific heat of metal In this lab we experimented with heat, metal, and water. We filled a beaker with two inches of water and place a metal log inside. The beaker was placed onto a heating plate and waited for the water to become boiled. The metal was taken out of the beaker and then transferred to a small paper cup where it was filled with 23 degrees Celsius of water and a thermometer determined the rise the temperature in the water in the cup. This process is used when finding the calorimeter

to specific heat Water has a high specific heat and it also has a high heat of vaporization. The result of this is because of the polarity of water molecules. Because the atoms covalent bond is so uneven, the oxygen side is very negative and the hydrogen sides are very positive. Water atoms are very attracted to each other because the very negative side is attracted to another atoms very positive side. How does this connect to evaporative cooling and specific heat though? Well, the specific heat

the purpose of this lab was to find heat capacity and to calculate the specific heat. A calorimeter is an apparatus for measuring the amount of heat that is involved with chemical reaction or in any other process. We tried to do our plan and figure out how we are going to do this lab We got a stirafoam cup and put water in it and heated it up to make room temperature water. Grab the aluminum and tie it onto the string. We grabbed a probe and put it inside of our calculator and took the temperature

Specific heat capacity is the amount of heat required to change a substances mass by a degree Celsius. Water has a very high specific heat capacity compared to any liquid. This difference is why the land and the oceans are at different temperatures, the water compared to the land decreases its temperature slower due to this unique heat capacity. The opposite can also occur, the ocean takes longer to warm up than the land. Some examples of the unusually high heat capacity of water include, the circulation

Purpose/ Research Question: Determine the specific heat capacity of two unknown metals. Find two Ionic compounds out of the several given chemicals that would synthesize in the product of the most effective hand warmer. Hypothesis: For both metals one and two, we can calculate the specific heat capacity within five percent error. The ideal hand warmer for cost, toxicity, and heat given off would include 5.0 g Magnesium Sulfate (MgSO4) and 10 mL of deionized water. Procedures: We set up an appropriate
