Students relate thermal energy to heat capacity by comparing the heat capacities of different materials and graphing the change in temperature over time for a specific material. Students learn why heat capacity is an important property of thermal energy that engineers use in many applications.Denise CarlsonIntegrated Teaching and Learning Program,Jeff LyngMalinda Schaefer ZarskeSabre DurenEducation2015-10-16T16:47:09.131888Course Related MaterialsHot Potato, Cool Foil

Students explore material properties by applying some basic principles of heat transfer. They use calorimeters to determine the specific heat of three substances: aluminum, copper and another of their choice. Each substance is cooled in a freezer and then placed in the calorimeter. The temperature change of the water and the substance are used in heat transfer equations to determine the specific heat of each substance. The students compare their calculated values with tabulated data.Integrated Teaching and Learning Program, College of Engineering,James PragerJanet YowellMalinda ZarskeMegan SchroederEducation2015-10-16T16:46:33.626446Course Related MaterialsHow Hot Is It?

Students learn about the nature of thermal energy, temperature and how materials store thermal energy. They discuss the difference between conduction, convection and radiation of thermal energy, and complete activities in which they investigate the difference between temperature, thermal energy and the heat capacity of different materials. Students also learn how some engineering requires an understanding of thermal energy.Denise CarlsonIntegrated Teaching and Learning Program,Jeff LyngMalinda Schaefer ZarskeSabre DurenEducation2015-10-16T16:44:21.330191Course Related MaterialsHeat Transfer: From Hot to Not
