Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi.
Was wondering if anyone knew where i could find a list of the metals and their specific heat capacities.
All i have found is this one:
http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/specific-heat-metals-d_152.html
but i would like one that deals with all the metals

Thanks

Hi fin. The best site I'm aware of on the net is:
http://www.matweb.com/search/SearchSubcat.asp

Note that specific heat for any material will change depending on temperature. The lower you go toward absolute zero, the smaller the specific heat. The affect is quite dramatic, so if you're looking at low temperature values, I'd suggest using another source. The values given in matweb are generally for a range around ambient temperature though there are also high temperature properties provided.

If you're looking for specific heat data below about -50 F, I'd have to suggest some other sources including the NIST web site.
