I have decided for my advanced level coursework to investigate whether the specific heat capacity of a few metals affects their resistivity in any way. (prob in a circuit)

I am at the stage of planning and i have less than a week to complete this stage.

I have a few ideas about measuring the specific heat capacity of a few metals which include :

Aluminium, Nickel, Brass and Iron.

And i am going to set up a circuit of some sort to test their resistivity varying the lengths (and thicknesses if my school has the equip).

Draw graphs and find the gradients and try to relate them.

See if there are any patterns in my results and use science to try and explain why these patterns (if any) occur.

Apart from this I cant think of any other related ideas which links the specific heat capacity of metals and their resistance.

I am not asking ppl on this forum to provide me with the answers but If you can, provide me with some ideas which is related to the coursework title .

Then i can research these new ideas and put them into practice, making my coursework more interesting.

Thanks
