Product Description
This lab uses basic calorimetry in the form of a styrofoam cup system to measure the transfer of heat between a piece of metal and a surrounding water bath. Students use a variation on the equation Q=mC(delta)T to calculate the specific heat capacity (C) of the sample of metal. It's a very good lab, inexpensive, and keeps students interested.

My labs are straightforward. Some of them are paper labs, but the ones that involve significant laboratory setup or calculations to be made on the part of the teacher are written about in a Teacher Notes section at the end of those particular labs. I use relatively safe and inexpensive chemicals. Of course, safety precautions are always noted at the beginning of the lab.
