- Homework Statement:
What are the assumptions that we make when doing a calorimetry experiment? (when the calorimeter is a foam cup)?
What are the sources of error when doing a calorimetry experiment? (when the calorimeter is a foam cup)?
- Relevant Equations:
- this question does not really need any equations to be answered, but Q=mc(delta T)
I just know that one assumption is that the specific heat capacity of water (as the surrounding) stays the same (or the change in its heat capacity is negligible). Please Help me with the rest.
