Demos: 3E-02 Comparison of Specific Heats of Metals
Four cylinders of approximately the same mass are made from different metals: zinc, copper, aluminum and lead. The cylinders are heated by immersing them in boiling water and then placed on a paraffin slab. The depth to which each cylinder melts its way into the paraffin is proportional to the specific heat of the metal.
