Abstract

89. A new electrical method

In this report is described a method of procuring the specific heats of materials by comparing the rate of heating of water by direct passage of current through it to the rate of heating when the water contains small particles of the material. By this method one may determine accurately the specific heat of a substance over various temperature ranges and while the temperature is rising. It is also especially applicable where the specific heat cannot be obtained accurately by the method of mixtures because of the nature of the material.
