# Which gets hotter faster copper or water?

## Which gets hotter faster copper or water?

Your answer: Sample Complete Student Response: Water has a higher specific heat capacity because it has less of a tendency to change in temperature. Copper with the temperature of 60 degrees Celsius, and the same mass as that of the water in which it was placed, cooled off to 23.4 degrees Celsius.

### What heats up faster gold or water?

An equal mass of water in the same sun will not become nearly as hot. We would say that water has a high heat capacity (the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of an object by 1°C.)…Heat Capacity and Specific Heat.

Substance Specific Heat (J/g°C)
Gold (s) 0.129
Iron (s) 0.449
Mercury (l) 0.140

What holds more heat air or water?

Water’s specific heat capacity is 4200 Jkg-1K-1 and Air’s is 993 Jkg-1K-1 therefore water has 4.23 times more specific heat capacity. Water has a density of 1000/m3 and air has a density of 1.275/m3 therefore water would be 784.31 x denser than air.

What cools faster water or metal?

The metal heats faster than the water because it requires less energy to heat it up (it has a lower heat capacity).

## What metal cools down the quickest?

Thermal conductivity is the measure of a metal’s ability to conduct heat. What this means is that that the metal acts to cool temperatures, through a process of dissipation. The metals with the highest thermal conductivity are copper and aluminium. The lowest are steel and bronze.

### Which is metal heats up faster, copper, or silver?

For copper it will be 100/0.39 x 100 = 2.56°C. For silver 00/0.24 x 100 = 4.6°C. The smaller the specific heat value, the higher the temperature change, when equal amounts of energy are added to equal amounts of mass of metal. Thermal conductivity – the ability of a substance to conduct heat (an intensive property of matter).

Which is better at absorbing heat aluminum or copper?

Aluminum has the ability to absorb heat faster than copper, and when removed from the heat source, will cool faster because it is less dense than copper. BUT..in a system with steady heat input, like a computer cpu, copper is better at keeping heat going into and out of the metal, much as it is with electricity. What metal cools the fastest?

Which is substance heats up the fastest air or water?

1. Air heats up and the fastest and cools down the fastest. 2. Sand and Soil will heat up faster and cool down faster than water, but not as fast as air. Which oil heats up the fastest? For both the hot plate and the microwave, olive oil will heat up faster than water because the heat capacity of oil is lower than the heat capacity of water.

## Which is the first metal to heat up?

100. g samples of copper, silver, and aluminum at room temperature are placed on a hot plate. The initial temperature of each metal is measured and recorded. The hot plate is turned on. Which metal will reach 60°C first?
