Lab 9: Enthalpy and Specific Heat In today’s lab, I will be learning how to determine and compare the specific heat of an unknown metal while recording my data throughout the lab. Upon completion of the experiment, I will be able to determine the unknown metal. During this experiment I will also be testing the endothermic and exothermic processes between an ice pack and heat warmers. Pre – Lab Questions : 1. When 3.0 kg of water is warmed from 10 °C to 80 °C, how much heat energy is needed? q=cmΔT q = (4.186 J/ g o C)*(3.0 kg)*(70°C) 879,060 J 2. A calorimeter contains 100 g of water at 39.8 ºC. A 8.23 g object at 50 ºC is placed inside the calorimeter. When equilibrium has been reached, the new temperature of the water and metal object is 40 ºC. What type of metal is the object made from? 4.86JgK * 100g * (40 o C – 39.8 o c) 83.72 J 8.23g*(50c – 40c) 823cJ 83.72J /823L 0.10173JgK Lead Experiment 1 : Determination of Specific Heat of a Metal Table 2: Mass Mass (g) Water 50.0g Unknown Metal Strip Table 3: Specific Heat Data

    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.
