Computer demo: Nesting can calorimeter, runs 3 min.

Nesting Can Calorimeter Computer Demo. Mass of Brass Slug = 1500 gms., Heat Capacity of Brass = .092 Cal/per Gram-Degree, Heat Capacity of Water = 1.0 Cal/per Gram-Degree, Mass of Inner Can = 179 gms. A brass slug with a mass of 1500 gms. is brought to 100 deg C by immersing it in a boiling water bath. It is then placed in the inner chamber of a nesting can calorimeter that contains 200 ml of water at room temperature. A plot is done of the cooling of the brass slug and the warming of the water in the calorimeter. The plot takes three minutes.
