Specific heat capacity and specific latent heat



We already know that heating a substance can both increase its temperature and cause it to change from one state of matter to another.  In this video, we’ll look at the equations and experiments which can give us a lot more information about both of these processes, before going on to look at the core practical activities for this part of the course.

Key Words

practical activity, core practical, temperature, kinetic energy, thermal energy, heat energy, specific heat capacity, internal energy, potential energy, specific latent heat, latent heat, heating, cooling, specific latent heat of fusion, specific latent heat of vaporisation
