Specific heat submitted by: [your full name] lab partner: [their full name] due date [example: 25 october 2006] purpose: the reason for this lab is to find the specific heat of the given metal. Specific heats and molar heat capacities for various substances at 20 c substance: c in j/gm k: c in cal/gm k or btu/lb f: molar c j/mol k: aluminum: 0900: 0215: 243: why are the metallic molar specific heats so nearly the same index tables reference tipler. Lab #10: specific heat capacity of metals objectives: to determine the specific heat capacity of various metals equipment: equipment needed qty equipment needed qty specific heats container 1 calorimeter 1 steam generator 1 balance 1 temperature. Heat capacity of metals r phywe series of publications laboratory experiments physics phywe systeme gmbh 37070 g ttingen, germany 23301 1 the specific heat capacity of the material from which the test. Where and have been used to denote the specific heats for one kmol of gas and is the universal gas constant the specific heat ratio, (or ), is a function of only and is greater than unity.
Identification of an unknown metal in this lab we will be using lab techniques and basic chemical concepts to identify an unknown metal every metal has a unique set of properties we will be using density and specific heat (also known as heat capacity or specific heat capacity) your. Heat capacity of water water does indeed have a very high specific heat capacity the heat of water is the amount of heat needed to raise its temperature a certain amount metals have a much lower specific heat capacity than water. Usually c is given as specific heat capacity, c, per thermal properties 6 heat capacity of metals - electronic contribution in addition to atomic vibrations (phonons), thermal excitation of electrons can also make contribution to heat capacity. Commonly used metals - aluminum, iron, mercury and many more - and their specific heats - imperial and si units. Specific heat the specific heat is the specific heat per gram for water is much higher than that for a metal the molar specific heats of most solids at room temperature and above are nearly constant, in agreement with the law of dulong and petit.
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. The units for the specific heat capacity are  for example, the element uranium is a metal which has a density almost 36 times that of the metal lithium, but uranium's specific heat capacity on a volumetric basis. How to calculate specific heat how do i calculate specific heat capacity when no quantity of heat is given when solving for specific heat, cross out units when possible metal heats up faster than water because of its low specific heat.
Chemistry lab: specific heat of a metal what to turn in: data table 1 ~ data table 2 ~ data table 3 ~ calculations ~ questions #1-7 introduction. Specific heat capacity, c the specific heat capacity of a substance, c, is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 g of a substance by 1 oc. Start studying chemistry chapter 6 learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards what is the heat capacity of the metal, assuming it is constant over the temperature range concerned a) the specific heat capacity of steel is higher than the specific heat capacity of wood b.
If the final temperature of the mixture is 25 o c, calculate the specific heat capacity (c) of the metal of the block (assume no loss of heat and that no water is vaporised) heat lost by block = 05c(100 - 25.
Thermochemistry is the study of the heat energy involved in chemical reactions and changes of physical calculate the specific heat capacity of the unknown metal (see calculations) day 3 - heats of reactions (part iv)- heat of solution. The specific heat of metals are lower than that of water specific heat capacity is the measurement of how much energy (in j) has to be added to 1 kg of a substance to increase the temperature of that substance by 1^oc simply, substances with a low specific heat capacity heat up quickly - but. This lab will help you to be able to explain what specific heat is and find the specific heat of a metal using household objects after completing. 236 specific heat capacities the ratio of the specific heat capacity at constant pressure to that at constant volume is usually determined directly by some method involving an adiabatic expansion specific heat capacities of metals, alloys and miscellaneous substances. Measure the mass of an empty beaker make sure to record the mass in kg add room temp water - enough to cover metal sample measure new mass - subtract empty beaker's mass to know mass of the water make sure to use kg. Experiment aim: to find the specific heat capacity of three different metal using the method of mixtures specific heat capacity - it is the amount of heat (thermal) energy required to cause a rise in temperature by 1 c in a solid of 1kg.
