Students use a temperature sensor to determine the heat of solution of a number of ionic compounds and propose a practical hand warmer design.
In this lab, students explore specific heat by measuring the temperatures of water and sand under an incandescent bulb. Then, they use a calorimeter to precisely measure the specific heat of each.
Students use a temperature sensor to experimentally determine the identity of a metal based on its specific heat capacity.
In this lab, students will use a fast response temperature sensor and calorimetry to determine the heat of fusion for water.
