Heat capacity

  1. Mar 3, 2005 #1
    I had a lab about tin's heat of fusion. I need to know tin' specific heat near fusion point. Can anybody advice any useful resourse? I have two books, in which are opposite data. I suppose that liquid tin must have higher heat capacity as solid ("liquid" molecules have more "freedom"). Help me please.

    I know the solid tin has 2 different crystal structures (allotropic forms I believe is the term) that have radically different properties. Maybe this has caused an error in one of your books?
