An experiment measures the temperature of a 500 g substance while steadily supplying heat to it. The figure shows the results of the experiment (see attachment)
What is the (a) specific heat of the solid phase, (b) specific heat of the liquid phase?
m = 0.5 kg
From the Plot, we get,
del Q = 20 kJ
del T = ...
The solution includes calculations for specific heat in the solid phase and the liquid phase.
