Lab #11 Calorimetric method Dustin Johnston Physics 118 Spring 2008 Introduction There are two objectives in this lab. One to study the calorimetric method of determining the specific heat of different materials. Second this lab examines the way that you can use measured losses to compensate for error. Procedure During this lab you will use several metal samples, digital thermometer, boiler and a calorimetric vessel. The first step is to measure the heat loss to the environment, to do this first measure the mass of the empty calorimeter cup. Next add hot tap water and measure its mass a second time. Now measure the temperature every ten minutes. Now fill the boiler half full and begin heating it. Measure the mass of the two empty cups, fill one of the cups about 1/3 rd of the way full with cold water and determine its mass by subtracting the mass of the empty cups from the total mass of water and cups. Fill the second cup about 1/3 rd of the way full with hot water and determine the hot waters mass by subtracting the mass of the empty cups from the total mass
