Calorimetry

Notes

Heat Capacity or Thermal Capacity

This note provides us an information about Heat Capacity or Thermal Capacity . Calorimetry is an experimental technique for quantitative measurement of heat exchange. The specific heat capacity of a substance is defined as the amount of heat required to change the temperature of unit mass of the substance through 1 degree.

Principle of Calorimetry and Newton’s Law of Cooling

This note provides us an information about Principle of Calorimetry and Newton’s Law of Cooling with verification . The specific capacity of the solid is measured by the different method like mixture .Newton’s law of cooling can be used to measure the specific heat capacity of a liquid. It is based on the principle that when the two liquids are cooled under identical conditions, their rates of cooling are equal.
