Basic Specific Heat Model 
A simple model which will allow students to see how the specific heat and
/or mass of a sample affects the rate of temperature change for that
sample. Students run several different samples on a comparison graph.
The graph below compares water (bottom line) to lead (top line) and
another substance with a specific heat of about 2. This model simply
allows the students to see that all things being equal (amount of heat
transferred, mass, etc), the substance with the larger specific heat will
experience the smallest temperature change.
Temp_Substance(t) = Temp_Substance(t  dt) + (Temp_change) * dt INIT Temp_Substance = 20 Temp_change = Amt_heat_per_sec/(Mass*Specific_Heat) Amt_heat_per_sec = 1 Mass = 1 Specific_Heat = .13 Time SpecsRange: 0 to 12, dT = .25, Integration Method = Euler's Method
