AIM: To find the specific heat capacity of a solid by method of mixtures.

Materials Required: calorimeter, Thermometer (110 ° c), stopwatch,

weighing machine.

Background Theory:

1. Specific heat capacity of a substance is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 Kg of that substance by 1° c.

2. Thermal equilibrium is a state when the amount of heat given by one body to another is equal to the amount of heat energy given by second body to the first and the temperatures remain constant.

Data Collection:

Least count of Thermometer: 1°C

Uncertainty of Thermometer: 0.5°C

Least count of Weighing Scale: 0.1g = 0.0001kg

Uncertainty of
