Lab Seven Specific Heat Purpose: In this lab, our goals are to compare heat loss by cooling water and heat gained by warming water and to understand that heat is a form of energy. Also, our goal is to measure the specific heats of aluminum, copper, and lead. Data and Calculations: Part One : Initial Temperature (Degrees Celsius) Final Temperature (Degrees Celsius) Hot Water 25.8 17.4 Cold Water 9.0 17.4 Part Two: Trial One Aluminum Trial Two Copper Trial Three Lead Mass of Calorimeter (Kilograms) 0.0079 0.0079 0.0079 Mass of Sample (Kilograms) 0.1973 0.193 0.2341 Initial Temp. of Sample (Degrees Celsius) 94.5 94.8 94.5 Initial Temp. of Cool Water (Degrees Celsius) 24.5 32.6 25.3 Final Temp. of Mixture (Degree Celsius) 33.5 36.1 26.6 Total Mass (Kilograms) 0.491 0.486 0.5759 Results: In this experiment, we found in Part One, which the change in temperature and the change in heat were exactly the same for both the temp/heat gain and temp/heat loss. In Part Two, we found that in our experiment, we were not able to
