Electrical methods to determine specific heat capacity of water A21 E ditor: Fred Critical thinker: John

Diagram and set of equipments

Steps to be followed W eigh the empty calorimeter to get mass(m 1 ),fill the calorimeter with water to get mass(m 2 ). I nsert the digital thermometer and heat coil into the calorimeter to get change in temperature ( ∆ t) and change in heat ( ∆Q ) , put it in the lagging and put the cover on the calorimeter to prevent heat loss. C onnect heat supply and joule meter with electric coil.

I nsert the digital thermometer and heat coil into the calorimeter to get change in temperature ( ∆ t) and change in heat ( ∆Q ) , put it in the lagging and put the cover on the calorimeter to prevent heat loss.

C onnect heat supply and joule meter with electric coil.

Method to collect data Find the mass of water (m w )=mass of calorimeter with water(m 1 )-mass of calorimeter without water(m 2 ) E.g. (m w )=0.200kg(m 1 )-0.100(m 2 )=0.100kg Find the change in temperature ( ∆t)=final temperature(t 1 )- initial temperature(t 2 ) E.g. ( ∆t )=30 0 c(t 1 )-20 o c(t 2 )=10 o c Find the change in heat ( ∆Q )=final heat(Q1)-initial heat(Q2) E.g. ( ∆Q)=5000J(Q1)-2000J(Q2)=3000J According to the equation Q=mc ∆t c=Q/m ∆t C =3000J/(0.100kg x 10K)=3.0 x 10 3 Jkg -1 K -1

Find the mass of water (m w )=mass of calorimeter with water(m 1 )-mass of calorimeter without water(m 2 )

E.g. (m w )=0.200kg(m 1 )-0.100(m 2 )=0.100kg

Find the change in temperature ( ∆t)=final temperature(t 1 )- initial temperature(t 2 )

E.g. ( ∆t )=30 0 c(t 1 )-20 o c(t 2 )=10 o c

Find the change in heat ( ∆Q )=final heat(Q1)-initial heat(Q2)

E.g. ( ∆Q)=5000J(Q1)-2000J(Q2)=3000J

According to the equation Q=mc ∆t c=Q/m ∆t

C =3000J/(0.100kg x 10K)=3.0 x 10 3 Jkg -1 K -1

Safety Measures Do not set too high voltage on power supply Make sure the thermometer is far from the heat coil to prevent the break of thermometer.

Do not set too high voltage on power supply

Make sure the thermometer is far from the heat coil to prevent the break of thermometer.

Method to reduce error Use a calorimeter with small capacity to prevent heat loss. Repeat the experiment to get accurate results.
