LAB: What Metal is This? Using Student-Engineered Calorimeters in Lab

Unit 4: Thermodynamics
Lesson 11 of 11

Objective: SWBAT use their small group designed and tested calorimeters during a specific heat capacity investigation in which students determine the identify of an unknown metal through determining its specific heat capacity.

Big Idea: Determining the amount of heat lost by hot metal to cool water can be used to determine the specific heat capacity of that unique metal, thereby helping us identify what metal it might be.
