How to find composition using Specific HEat

  • #1
IS it possible?
say if the specific heat is 800
and the composition is made up of 2 materials
one which has specific heat of 850
and the other of 750

Its an inverse problem.

You'd need to assume a model for the specific heat as a function of composition and the specific heats of the pure materials, and use the model equation to solve for the unknown compositions.

hmmm

say if it was made out of copper n iron
copper having 400 specific heat heat capacity
Iron having 890 specific heat
and the mixture had 780 specific heat capacity
^ assume the values are that
can u show me how to do the inverse problem to find the composition?

no one is going to show you how to do anything.

you need to figure it out on your own.
