Experiment 14 27/02/07 Experiment 14: Specific Heat Capacity of Metal by Electrical Method Risk Assessment The risks involved with this experiment are outlined below 1. Thermal Risk 2. Electrical Risk Experiment Aim The aim of the experiment is to calculate the specific heat capacity of two materials by electrical method. This will be achieved by using an electrical heating coil which will be placed in the material and measuring the temperature rise with respect to the time and using these values along with the mass of the metal and current and voltage passing through the circuit. Below is a list of all the apparatus which was used in the experiment Aluminium block with holes Copper Block with holes Heating coil Thermometer Lagging Power supply Voltmeter Ammeter Rheostat Stopwatch Below is a diagram of how the apparatus was set up in order to collect my results. 1of 3
