**Learning Outcomes:**• Rearranging equation for Specific Heat Capacity Topic • Equation for Specific Heat Capacity Target Audience: • G & T • Teacher instructions added in the notes section of PowerPoint**Starter: Which factors would affect the temperature rise of**a metal block when it is heated?**Investigation – heating aluminium and copper**Thermometer Thermometer Heater Heater Aluminium Copper**Identify variables for the investigation**• Independent • Dependent • Control • Material (Specific Heat Capacity) • Temperature Change (θ) • Mass (1kg) and Energy supplied (J)**Equation for Specific Heat Capacity**• E is the energy transferred in joules, J • m is the mass of the substances in kg • c is the specific heat capacity in J / kg °C • θ (‘theta’) is the temperature change in degrees Celsius, °C E = m × c × θ**Table for different substances and their specific heat**capacities**What did we find out from our investigation?**How can we use the formula E = m x c x θ to calculate the temperature of the aluminium and copper blocks from our results?**To Do…**• Complete worksheet**Can you….**• Come up with ‘rules’ for rearranging equation for specific heat capacity!!
