Specific heat of metal

Equipment:
• Double walled calorimeter vacuum with tightly lid which is connected with it stirrer made from acrylic.
• Digital thermometer.
• Different metals in materials but the same in weight.
• Hanger to put the masses in hot water.
• Heating system.

Description

• In this experiment, we determine the specific heat capacity of metal.
• The specific heat capacity is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of unit mass of substance 1C°.
• When two substances of different temperatures are mixed together, the amount of the heat given by the first substance equals the amount of heat taken by the other one
