Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is a calorimetry an experiment or an equation? If its an experiment, what does it determind? If its an equation, what is it? My book doesn't distinguish what it is.

What is the equation for determining the specific heat capacity? Is it :

CiMiΔT=CfMfΔT

If there is anythig wrong with this please let me know so that I can work out these problems properly.

thanks, kitty
