Students will learn big questions concerning our environment like why San Francisco is almost always at the same temperature year round whereas Iowa's temperature fluctuates wildly throughout the year. Students will also learn to solve problems involving specific heat and phase change.
An interesting problem involving specific heat and phase change is explained and solved here.
Converting with units in both the numerator and denominator
Solving problems involving heat transfer for one object using Q = mcÎT
Determining mass or specific heat capacity for problems involving heat transfer between two objects using Q = mcÎT
Solving problems involving phase changes using the equation Q = mL
Determining the amount of heat necessary to heat and change the phase of an object using Q = mcÎT and Q = mL
