    the specific heat of a metal, in our case aluminum, was calculated (Table 1). The following formula was used: cm=mwcwT3-T1+mcccT3-T1 mmT2-T3 Where cw is the specific heat capacity of water and cc is the specific heat capacity of calorimeter. Substituting the values, we get an answer of 998.81 J/kg·C0 with a percent error of 10.98% determined by the formula: % error=theoretical-experimantalexperimental ×100 Table 1. Specific Heat of Metal Mass of Sample (mm) | 0.01655 kg | Mass of
