Title: Specific Heat Capacity

1
Specific Heat Capacity
Specific heat heat required to raise 1 g of
substance 1C
Substance Specific Heat (J/gC)
Water 4.18
Aluminum 0.897
Gold 0.129
Ethanol 2.44
• Every substance has its own specific heat
because it has a different arrangement of atoms

Specific Heat Problems
• 1. If the temperature of 34.4 g of ethanol
increases from 25C to 78.8C, how much heat has
been absorbed by the ethanol? (Specific heat for
ethanol 2.44 J/(gC) )

Specific Heat Problems
• 2. If the temperature of a 100 g piece of
aluminum increases from 20C to 150C, how much
heat has been absorbed by the aluminum. The
specific heat of aluminum is 0.897 J/(gC).

5
Specific Heat Problems
• 3. A 4.5 g nugget of pure gold absorbed 276 J of
heat. What was the final temperature of the gold
if the initial temperature was 25C. The specific
heat of gold is 0.129 J/(gC).

6
Specific Heat Problems
• 4. A 155 g sample of an unknown substance was
heated from 25C to 40C. In the process, the
substance absorbed 5696 J of energy. What is the
specific heat of the substance?

7
Specific Heat Problems
• 5. A 352 g sample of an unknown substance was
heated from 40C to 100C. In the process, the
substance absorbed 7696 J of energy. What is the
specific heat of the substance?

8
Specific Heat Problems
• 6. If the temperature of 300 g of ethanol
increases from 20C to 100C, how much heat has
been absorbed by the ethanol? (Specific heat for
ethanol 2.44 J/gC)

9
Specific Heat Problems
• 7. What is the mass of a substance that has a
specific heat of 0.449 J/gC and raises its
temperature in a calorimeter from 20C to 90C
when it release 12,300 J of energy?

10
Specific Heat Problems
• 8. What is the mass of a substance that has a
specific heat of 0.362 J/gC and raises its
temperature from 25C to 110C when it absorbs
8700 J of energy?
