Problem 19.6: Specific heat and latent heat of fusion
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
This animation shows a container holding 1 kg of a solid heated by a heater delivering 2400 watts to the material (temperature is given in kelvin and time is given in seconds). Restart. Find the specific heat capacity of the material and its latent heat of fusion. Ignore the heat capacity of the container.
