  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

This calorimetry lab is designed to make heat transfer and thermal equilibrium easy for students to understand. Students will complete a calculation of specific heat and compare it to the actual specific heat of the metal. It requires metal pieces, test tubes, beakers, coffee cups, and a thermometer along with other basic lab equipment.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (second law of thermodynamics). Emphasis is on analyzing data from student investigations and using mathematical thinking to describe the energy changes both quantitatively and conceptually. Examples of investigations could include mixing liquids at different initial temperatures or adding objects at different temperatures to water. Assessment is limited to investigations based on materials and tools provided to students.
