Specific Heat Capacity and Specific Latent Heat

  • #1
Hi Everyone :smile:

I have to create an experiment for my assignment in Physics.
I've chosen to do something about Specific Heat Capacity. A boy in my class is also doing SHC so I wanted to make mine a little different from his.

I've just recently joined physics (never done it before) and I was wondering if Specific Heat Capacity and Specific Latent Heat have anything in common. Or if there is any way that I could include them in the same experiment and somehow discuss how (if) they relate to eachother by comparing the results from the experiment.

Oh and i'm sorry if i posted this in the wrong section. I wasn't sure whether to post it in here or the homework section :redface:

You could heat a block of ice until it goes to vapor, always checking for temperature, then graphing time vs temperature and showing the latent heat in the graph as an horizontal line.
