Metal Name Mass of Metal Volume of water Initial temp. in calorimeter Initial temp. in beaker Final temp. of mixture Aluminum 34.720g 26.0mL 25.4°C 100.6°C 41.6°C Part II: Insert a complete data table, including appropriate significant figures and units, in the space below. Also include any observations that you made over the course of part II. The presentation models the solving of calorimetry calculations. Explain the use of a calorimeter and have students work on an inquiry activity using a coffee cup calorimeter. Students will be required to measure the temperature changes of substances as they are in a calorimeter and then apply this information to calculate specific heat capacities. Calorimeters can be used to find a substance's specific heat capacity. You will use the Calorimetry Lab Gizmo™ to determine the specific heat capacities of various substances.
Lab 4 - Calorimetry Purpose To determine if a Styrofoam cup calorimeter provides adequate insulation for heat transfer measurements, to identify an unknown metal by means of its heat capacity and to determine a heat of neutralization and a heat of solution.
