Specific heat of a metal lab this video shows the collection of data to determine the specific heat of a metal heat capacity, specific heat.
Determine the specific heat of a metal if 630 g of the metal is heated to 1029oc and then put into a foam cup with 625 g of water at 250oc the temperature of the water/metal mixture after mixing them is 516oc.
Calorimetry lab - specific heat capacity introduction experience tells us that if a hot piece of metal is added to water, the temperature of the water will rise if several different metals having the same mass are heated to the same temperature and added to the same amount of water at the. Calorimetry lab - specific heat capacity introduction experience tells us that if a hot piece of metal is added to water, the temperature of the water will rise. Chem 139 lab guide page 1 experiment 9 experiment 9 specific heat capacities of metals the purpose of this experiment is to identify two unknown metal samples based.
In today's lab, we calculated the specific heat capacity of a metal and found that it was much lower than the 4,187 value of water this shows that metals are much better conductors of heat than water.
To measure specific heat in the laboratory a calorimeter of some kind must be used a a calorimeter is a well-insulated container used in measuring energy changes.
Lab four 2 specific heat of a metal there are five measurements that must be made to determine the specific heat of the unknown metal: 1 determine the mass of the piece of metal 2 heat the metal piece to a known temperature and measure this temperature precisely this is the initial temperature of the metal 3. Chem 139 lab guide page 1 experiment 9 experiment 9 specific heat capacities of metals the purpose of this experiment is to identify two unknown metal samples based on physical properties 91 introduction heat is a form of energy that is transferred between objects with different temperatures heat.
The specific heat of water is then 418 j/(g ºc) purpose: the purpose of this lab is to apply the experimental methods of calorimetry in the determination of the specific heat of several metals. Heat capacity of 1 kg from data collected: heat capacity/mass = 371/0142 = 2612676 j/kg/oc additional work the specific heat capacity of a solid or liquid is defined as the quantity of heat required to change the temperature of a unit mass of a substance through a unit change in temperature.
