Conclusion: The results seemed to have been closer to the accepted heat capacity if the room temperature was higher, where we may have not waited long enough for the thermometer to show the waters more accurate temperature. However, this experiment does show firsthand how heat is transferred from the object into the water by the conservation of energy....
