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.  Full details of the practical activity for this part of the course are provided also.
