Activity: Heat capacity and change of state

IB Physics: Activity: Heat capacity and change of state

Sometimes heat increases an object"s temperature. Sometimes it results in a change in state. In this activity, you will define specific heat capacity and measure that of water, gaining a better understanding of the relationship between heat and temperature. Likewise, you will define specific latent heat, measure the latent heat of fusion of water and conclude by solving problems related to latent heat and specific heat...
