In each of the following, state and explain which container will have the hotter liquid after thirty seconds:
a) You pour equal amounts of of hot coffee into two cup s from a percolator. The cups are the same general size and shape. One is made from heavy china one is made from delicate china.
b) Your pour equal amounts of hot olive oil into two urns. The urns are the same general size and shape. One is made from pewter the other from brass.
2. The attempt at a solution
The solution is a attached but I still fail to understand. From what I can grasp the rate at which heat is transferred in the the thermal conductivity. However in their answers they talk about specific heat. I fail to understand why the loss of heat from the liquids are not constant.
