Luke Wyatt 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. Apparatus & Diagram 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

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
