Guided Specific Heat of Solid Lab
In this guided lab you will determine the specific heat of an unknown solid. You will place the solid into boiling water for a sufficient amount of time that it reaches the boiling point of the water. You will then place it in cold water and monitor the temperature change. You will then set the heat lost by the hot solid equal to the heat gained by the water. This will allow you to find the specific heat of the unknown.
