Notes on Burner Output and C-Value of Metals Burner Output: Before we can go about designing a hot pack, we need to learn a few key concepts. This includes heat, the difference between heat and temperature, how to solve a heat equation, and the relationship between matter and energy. First of all, heat is the measure of the total kinetic energy in a substance. Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. So, when we have to design our hot pack, we need to know how much heat will be given off or how much heat will be absorbed. To find the amount of heat, you can’t go by just the temperature change because heat and temperature are two different things. Heat is the total amount of kinetic energy of a substance where temperature is the average amount of kinetic energy of a substance. The average means that you add up all the heat and divide it evenly. We need to know how to convert temperature change into total heat. To find the total heat given off, the “q” equation must be used. This equation is q=mCT. In this equation, “q” stands for heat,

    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.
