Learning outcomes Recall key words
Determine the safe procedure to carry out the practical Evaluate your results

Specific heat capacity
E = mass x SHC x change in temperature Mass = 1kg SHC Al = 900J/kg0C SHC Cu = 385J/kg0C

Specific heat capacity practical
Equipment

Method Set equipment up, making sure to connect the power to the immersion heater Set the power pack to 12v Record the start temperature Turn the power on for 5 minutes, then switch power off Record the highest temperature reached Share results

Results table

Results table Material Temperature at start 0C Temperature at end 0C
Temperature difference 0C

Specific heat capacity
E = mass x SHC x change in temperature Mass = 1kg SHC Al = 900J/kg0C SHC Cu = 385J/kg0C So how much energy was used to heat your block? Was it different to another groups? Evaluate your practical.

Homework: due 9th September
In your books or on paper or on the computer draw a poster that explains the following key ideas: heat, temperature, specific latent heat and specific heat capacity. You must include an image for each key idea You must in your own words explain what these words mean
