Then, how do you find the specific heat of a calorimeter?

Part I: Heat Capacity of the Calorimeter The heat capacity, C, of a substance is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a given quantity of the substance by 1 degree. The relationship between heat capacity and specific heat is C = m×sp_heat. Therefore, q = C×Δt and C = q ÷ Δt.

Beside above, what is the formula for specific heat? Specific heat is the amount of heat required to raise one gram of any substance one degree Celsius or Kelvin. The formula for specific heat is the amount of heat absorbed or released = mass x specific heat x change in temperature.

Simply so, what is the specific heat of a metal?

Specific Heat Capacity of Metals Table Chart. The specific heat is the amount of heat enregy per unit mass required to raise the temperature by one degree Celsius.

Can you use specific heat to identify an unknown metal?

1 Answer. Specific heat is an intensive property (like density, color, etc.) This allows substances to be identified using their specific heat. Imagine an unknown metal of known mass is heated to a known temperature.
