(b) (i) Determine the atmospheric pressure in the laboratory in N/m2 (Take g = 10m/s2 and density of mercury = 13600 kg/m3).
(3 marks:
(ii) Use the graph to determine the boiling point of water in the laboratory. (1 mark)
(c) In an experiment to determine the specific heat capacity of a metal, a 100g of the metal was transferred from boiling water to a lagged copper calorimeter containing cold water. The water was stirred and a final steady temperature was realized. The following data was recorded...
