John Salek-Raham D. Sarkar Physics 151 Experiment T1 V1 : Using a calorimeter and a thermistor, measurements of water were taken every 30 seconds for 10 minutes. Then, a cool pure copper sample was added to the calorimeter, and thermistor recordings were measured every 30 seconds for 15 minutes.

Using the principle of conservation of energy and the relationships given in the PHY 151 lab manual: c M = (Ti-Tf ) (Mw + 0.22Mc ) (Tf) (Mm) c M = V2 : The procedure for V1 was repeated, only using a pure aluminum sample.

The fact that the calorimeter, though not perfectly adiabetic. There is always some energy loss due to the calorimeter, though it is small compared to a normal container. This could explain the discrepancy between the results obtained and the accepted value. 2....
