Heat Capacity of Brass and Aluminum Introduction: In our lab, we heated up two different masses of both brass and aluminum in an attempt to find the C of the metal. In order to see if different masses of the same metal have the same Heat capacity, we re-arranged the equation to solve C of the Metal, Cmetal = Qrxn / (mass)( t). Procedure: We got to pieces of the same metal that had different masses. We had a beaker of water at room temperature sitting and waiting. We then heated the metal in a beaker of water until the water reached its boiling point. Also in the water was a set of tongs heating, we used the tongs and moved the piece of metal quickly into a the room temperature water, and recorded the temperature in 30 second intervals. We did this twice for each different metal sample. The metal was added at the 3 minute mark each time. Brass Temp 1 and 3: 40.9g sample Temp 2 and 4: 40.38g sample Time Temp 1 Temp 2 Temp 3 Temp 4 0 24.4 24.4 24.2 24.1 .5 24.4 24.4 24.3 24.1 1 24.4 24.4
