Specific Heat

Unit 5: Unit 6: Energy
Lesson 6 of 9

Objective: Students will be able to explain the concept of heat capacity and how to figure out the amount of energy transferred between substances through taking notes, performing practice questions, and participating in demonstrations.

Big Idea: Heat capacity is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of a substance and can be determined through experiments and calculations.
