Graphical Plot to Find Specific Heat Capacity of Brass
- Lew W. S.
In this experiment, you are to measure the highest temperature of the water after a heated brass solid is placed into a beaker of water. Several different masses of brass are used and masses and the resulting highest water temperatures are recorded in the spreadsheet area. Notes on the experiment are found in the Graphics 2 of the applet.
Your task is to determine the specific heat capacity of brass from the experiment, given that the specific heat capacity of water is 4.18 J/g/K Enter the relevant observed values into the Graphics 2 and Spreadsheet areas as instructed in the applet. The plotting of the experimental results is in Graphics 1 (The Geogebra applet design is already done for you, but you may modify if needed)
