Method of mixtures:
When different parts of an isolated system are at different temperatures, heat will flow from the part of higher temperature to the part of lower temperature.
Therefore, from conservation of energy:
Heat lost by hot object = Heat gained by cold object.
This experiment is conducted in order to determine the specific heats of three different metals using the method of mixtures.
Method of this experiment :
(copper , ead ,Aluminum).
Data collection and calculation :
