84 - Specific Heat

Setup in the lab with which the data students will receive was measured

In this lab assignment, you will evaluate a provided data set of experiment "12 - specific heat", plus you will calculate the heating power of your stove and the evaporation heat of water. Thus, the first part of the experiment is equivalent to experiment "12 - specific heat", but the second part involves you doing some measurements at home.


  • Stove
  • Pan (ca. 1 liter)
  • Scale or pot to measure volume of water
  • Thermometer is helpful, but not mandatory
