Do Now Check
Why it matters in LIFE: Explains why certain objects are made out of certain materials
Why it matters in THIS CLASS: This is the last topic we are covering before spring break – you will have a mastery quiz on Monday so let’s hit 85%!
CONDUCTORS: change heat easily
Low Specific Heat
Require little energy to change temp
INSULATORS: Do NOT change heat easily
High Specific Heat
Require LOTS of energy to change temp
Based on what you learned yesterday about temperature and pressure, what actually happens to the balloon?
Q = mCDT
Q = mC(Tf – Ti)
Q = heat (joules-J)
m = mass (kg)
C = specific heat (J/kg °C)
DT = change in temp (°C)
