Title:Specific Heat of MetalPurpose:Determining the specific heat of a metal sample.Materials and Apparatus:goggles; 250mL beaker; Styrofoam cup; thermometer; 18 X 150 mm test tube; lab burnerDrawings: Procedures and Observations:Procedures:1.With tap water, fill a 250mL beaker half full.2.Place the water filled beaker on a ring stand using wire gauze. Once on the ring stand, begin heating until it boils using a lab burner.3.Measure and record the mass of a dry, empty test tube that is 18 X 150 mm.4.Then add a sample of metal pieces to the test tube until it is half full. Once again, record the mass of the test tube with the metal.5.After that, place the test tube containing the sample of metal into the beaker of water and continue heating to a boil.6.Repeat steps 3-5 using another different metal sample. Then obtain a Styrofoam cup to be used as a calorimeter, measure the mass, and record.
7.Fill the Styrofoam cup half full with room temperature distilled water and record the mass.
