## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I'm thinking of doing an experiment related to Newton's law of cooling, just a simple heat up a liquid to a temp graph its rate of cooling, repeat for different liquids. I was thinking of seeing if from this graph I could calculate the specific heat capacity of the liquid, but I don't know if there is a link between K and C and whether they can be found from a graph. I was also wondering if to get more complex maths involved there are and related integral or differential calculations that would be worth doing on the graph or equations?

Q=mcT

T2 = T0 + (T1 - T0) * e(-k * Δt)

Thanks in advance,

B
