Objectives:

Identify an unknown sample of metal by determining its specific heat capacity.

Measure the latent heat of fusion of water.

Gain an understanding of heat capacity, latent heat, transfer of heat, and conservation of heat energy.

Equipment:

Electric burner and 2-quart pan, 1 for the class

Cool tap water, crushed ice, paper towels or cloth rags

Tongs, ladle or Pyrex measuring cup, and pot holder

Dropper bottle of glycerin (glycerine, glycerol), 1 for the class

Calorimeter and thermometer (10 C to 120 C)

Metal cylinder of unknown composition, beam or digital balance

Safety:

Use caution around the electric burner and pan of boiling water.

Use caution when inserting the glass thermometer into the rubber stopper. Use a drop of glycerin

inside the stopper if you have trouble pushing the thermometer in; this will reduce the risk of breaking

the glass thermometer.

2.1

The heat capacity of a material refers to the total amount of thermal energy that must be added or removed to

change the temperature of the material by a certain amount. The specific heat capacity is a quantification of

this property per unit mass. Hence, if Q represents the amount of thermal energy that is transferred (the heat

flow), c is the specific heat capacity, m the mass of the material, and T the temperature change, we can write

Q = cmT.

(2.1)

When two materials of different temperatures are placed in thermal contact, thermal energy is transferred

by one or more of the three processes of conduction, convection, or radiation. The warmer object loses thermal

energy and the cooler object gains energy. Theoretically, we can account for all of the energy transfers, and

if the materials are isolated or thermally insulated from the external environment, it becomes practical to do

this accounting. The heat lost by the warmer material (a negative quantity) and the heat gained by the cooler

material (a positive quantity) should total zero.

Q1 + Q2 = 0.

(2.2)

In this experiment, a metal cylinder with a temperature of 100 C is placed in thermal contact with cool

water, in a cool aluminum inner cup, with a cool stainless steel stirrer s. These four materials are thermally

isolated from the external environment by a layer of stationary air that is trapped between the inner cup and the

jacket of a calorimeter. The composition of the metal cylinder is assumed to be unknown and can be identified

by experimentally determining its specific heat capacity, cx . The accounting of the heat losses and gains takes

the form

Qx + QH2 O + QAl + Qs = 0.

(2.3)

In Eq. 2.3, heat Qx flows out of the hot metal cylinder, heat QH2 O flows into the cool water, heat QAl flows into

the cool aluminum cup, and heat Qs flows into the cool stainless steel stirrer. The algebraic sum of these heat

flows is zero.

2.2

The latent heat of fusion of a material refers to the amount of thermal energy that must be added to change

the state of a unit mass of material from solid to liquid. Similarly, the same amount of thermal energy can be

removed from the material to change its state in the other direction, from liquid to solid. If Q represents the

amount of heat flow, Lf is the latent heat of fusion, and m is the mass of the material, we can write

Q = m Lf .

(2.4)

In this experiment, crushed ice is placed in thermal contact with hot water, in a hot aluminum inner cup, with

a hot stainless steel stirrer. Well refer to stainless steel stirrer simply as s. These four materials are thermally

isolated from the external environment by a layer of stationary air that is trapped between the inner cup and

the jacket of the calorimeter. Thermal energy will be transferred from the hot materials to the ice. As the ice

gains heat, it will respond by going through the following three stages.

1. The temperature of the ice will increase until it reaches 0 C. The heat equation for this stage is based on

Eq. 2.1 and is

Q1 = cmT

(2.5)

where c is the specific heat capacity of ice, with the value of 0.50 cal/(g C).

2. Additional thermal energy will supply the necessary latent heat of fusion and cause the ice to melt. The

heat equation for this stage is based on Eq. 2.4 and is

Q2 = m L f

(2.6)

where Lf is the latent heat of fusion for water. Lf is the unknown value to be determined in this experiment.

3. Finally, additional heat flow into the melted ice will increase its temperature from 0 C to some final

temperature. The heat equation for this stage is

Q3 = cmT

(2.7)

where c is the specific heat capacity of water, with the value of 1.00 cal/(g C).

Using Eq. 2.2 to account for the heat losses and gains, it takes the form

Q1 + Q2 + Q3 + QH2 O + QAl + Qs = 0

(2.8)

In Eq. 2.8, heat Q1 flows into the sub-zero temperature ice and raises its temperature to 0 C. Heat Q2 flows

into the zero-degree ice and melts it. Heat Q3 flows into the melted ice and raises the temperature of this water

to Tf . Where does all of this heat come from? Heat QH2 O flows out of the warm water. Heat QAl flows out of

the warm aluminum can. Heat Qs flows out of the warm stirrer. The algebraic sum of these heat flows is zero.

2.3.1

Determine the specific heat capacity of an unknown.

1. Your instructor will fill the 2-quart pan one third full of water, place the pan on the electric burner, and

turn the temperature control to high. After the water comes to a boil, the temperature control may be

lowered such that water gently boils.

Figure 2.1: The parts of a calorimeter: at top right is the jacket and insulating ring; at bottom right is the inner

cup and stirrer; at left is the thermometer that has been inserted into a rubber stopper; and, at center is the

insulating lid. A drop of glycerin is used to insert the thermometer into the rubber stopper. Care must be used

so that the thermometer does not break and cause injury.

2. Remove the center rubber stopper from the insulating lid, and placing a drop of glycerin in the

hole of the stopper, carefully insert the thermometer into the stopper. Adjust the position of the rubber

stopper so that the bulb of the thermometer extends very close to the bottom of the inner cup when the

thermometer and stopper are inserted into the center hole of the insulating lid. The stirrer will protrude

from one of the small hole in the lid, and a cork will plug the other small hole.

3. Choose an unknown metal cylinder, describe its appearance, and determine its mass mx . Make a guess as

to its composition.

4. Remove the inner aluminum cup from its insulating ring and determine its mass mAl . Mass the stirrer,

ms . Add cool tap water to the inner cup to a depth of a couple cm. The exact amount does not matter

very much, since you will measure the mass of however much water you end up using for your calculations.

Mass the inner cup now that it contains water mAl+H2O . Place the inner cup into the insulating ring

and into the jacket. Place the lid on the calorimeter. Allow the water, inner cup, and stirrer to reach an

equilibrium temperature. Record this temperature as TH2 O .

5. Gently drop the metal cylinder into the pan of boiling water. Give it a minute or two to reach 100 C or

whatever the temperature of the hot water in the pan is. You will record this temperature as Tx . Have the

closed calorimeter next to the pan and very quickly use the tongs to lift the metal out of the boiling water,

shake any drops of water off of it, and insert it into the inner cup of the momentarily opened calorimeter.

Replace the calorimeter lid immediately.

3. Be sure that the aluminum inner cup is completely dry and clean before continuing. Use some paper towels

to dry it if necessary.

5. This experiment can be done with room-temperature water, but the precision of the results is improved

by using hot water. Boiling water is difficult to manage in an aluminum cup, so a good compromise is to

use warm water. Place some regular tap water in the inner cup of the calorimeter, then using a ladle or

a pyrex measuring cup, add hot water from the pan into the inner cup until it is about 1/3 to 1/2 full.

Mass the inner cup with the warm water in it. Calculate the mass of the warm water.

calorimeter and replace the lid immediately. Theres no need to exactly measure out this value, this is

only a suggestion; you may use however much you want since you will determine the exact mass of the

ice later. Return to your table, stir, and observe the temperature. When an equilibrium temperature is

reached, record this final temperature as Tf .

heat capacity from the table.

4. Calculate the percent error in your determination of the specific heat capacity by comparing your experimental value Xexp to the theoretical value Xth from the table. Report the error estimate to no more than

one or two significant digits.

Questions

1. Consider a hot pizza fresh from the oven. Why do you tend to burn your tongue on a bite of the hot

cheese, but not on the crust?

2. Consider a pan of boiling water. The temperature of the water is 100 C and the temperature of the

escaping steam, immediately above the surface of the water, is also 100 C. Which will give you the more

severe burn, putting your finger in the boiling water, or into the escaping steam? Why?
