How do you find the heat capacity of aluminum?

1. Change in energy stored thermally (due to the temperature rise) = mass x specific thermal capacity x temperature rise.
2. The temperature of I kilogram of aluminium rises about four times that of a kilogram of water.
3. The specific thermal capacity of aluminium is 900 J/kg °C.

### Does aluminum have a high heat capacity?

The aluminum’s temperature changed less than the copper’s did under the same conditions. Thus, the aluminum must require more energy to change its temperature. Therefore, aluminum has the higher specific heat.

### What is the specific heat capacity of aluminum?

• The specific heat capacity of aluminum alloys (816 to 1050 /kg K, or 0.195 to 0.258 Btu/lb F), which is approximately twice that of steel (377 to 502 /kg K, or 0.090 to 0.120 Btu/lb F) (Ref 1.7). This means that it takes twice as much heat energy to raise the temperature of aluminum one degree as compared to a similar mass of steel.

How much energy does it take to heat aluminium foil?

A metal like aluminium however needs just 0.9 J of energy to raise 1 g by 1 ºC. It therefore takes ~4.5 times more energy to raise the temperature of 1 g water than it takes to raise 1 g of aluminium.

#### What can I save in an aluminum can heater?

Pop cans, beer cans, sparkling water cans, any aluminum cans you can save, save them! Once you have a bunch of aluminum cans saved, gather these supplies: Black spray paint (high heat) mine was for grills. wood ( I used 1×4’s), and a piece of 1/4″ thick plywood for the back foam board insulation, or other foam/insulation

#### What kind of spray paint to use on aluminum can heater?

Now you can spray paint everything in your box with the high heat matte black spray paint. Try to get around all the corners and nooks and crannies. Once dry you can use your high heat glue to attach your glass to the top of the box. Make sure to make a good seal.
