# Project #92170 - Specific Heat of Copper.

Part B

Specific Heat of Copper.

4) Measure the temperature of the cold water and record it on your data table.

5) Run your hot water until it reaches the maximum temperature, and record this value on your data table

7) Measure the temperature of the 200 ml of water now in your coffee cup.

8 ) Use the following equation to find the heat lost by the hot water.

9 ) Next calculate the heat gained by the cold water using the same equation. The only difference is the

change in temperature is given by step 7 minus step 4.

10) Next, find the heat absorbed by the coffee cup. This is given by adding step 9 to step 8.

11 ) Now find the heat capacity of the coffee cup. This is given by dividing step 10 by the heat change of

the cold water.

18 ) Using the same equation as you did before, find the heat gained by the cold water.

19) Now use the heat capacity of your coffee cup found in step 11, and multiply it by the temperature

change of the cold water.

20) Add step 18 to step 20 and this is the heat lost by the copper shot.

21) Now find the specific heat of the copper by using the rearranged equation.
