This is a problem I made myself and it's really confusing me. You have 100mL of water and place it in a calorimeter of low specific heat capacity. You put another 100mL of water in another calorimeter of high specific heat capacity. Assume in both instances that the water is of a higher temperature than the calorimeters. Assume the water in both instances start at the same temperature. Assume the calorimeters start at the same temperature. They are closed systems. Will there be a difference in SPEED of heat energy transfer in each case.
The Attempt at a Solution
While specific heat capacity tells us the relationship between heat energy and temperature, it doesn't seem to me to specify how fast the transfer is. I'm thinking right now that the heat energy transfer will be exactly the same for both instances. Only the calorimeter of higher shc will have a lower deltaT/t but heat transfer should be exactly the same?
