Problem: Design a lab to identify an unknown metal. By solving for Heat capacity, i will be able to track What the metal is. Thus the goal of this experiment is to determine the unknown metal's heat capacity. Procedure: 1. Fill .1 kg water tank with .5 kg of water @ 0 celcius. Heat the unknown metal ( assume .1kg), which we will call X, with Y amount of joules until it reaches 50 celcius. 2. Place X into the water tank. Measure the change in temperature and when equilibrium is reached. Q = cmT where c= heat capacity Q= energy imput m=mass T = delta T Thus, we also known Qx + Q(water) = 0. (equilibrium) Thus... C(.1)(Tf-50) + 4186*.5*(Tf) = 0 We can determine final Tf through various trials. Do you guys think this would work as a lab to determine what the metal's heat capacity is which in turn is able to tell you what the metal is?
