Question

# Suppose you have samples of gold, iron, and aluminium, all of the same mass. If the same quantity of heat energy is applied in turn to each of the three samples, which sample of metal will end up at the highest temperature? Which will end up at the lowest temperature?

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 3

The quantity of energy required to change the temperature of a sample is calculated by taking the product of the mass of the sample, the specific heat capacity of the sample, and the temperature change undergone by the sample

Change in energy (Q) = Mass (m) $\times$ specific heat capacity (C) $\times$ change in temperature ($\Delta$T)
