Specific heat capacity of water – GCSE Physics

This resource is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching the new AQA GCSE Physics and Trilogy Physics specification, and links to Internal energy and Energy Transfers.

This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:

*Identify the equation for specific heat capacity.

*Describe the difference between heat and temperature.

*Explain, using a practical, how to find the specific heat capacity for water.

*Apply the equation for specific heat capacity to calculate the amount of energy required to heat up a known mass of water.

*Link your understanding of specific heat capacity and convection currents together to explain why it is windy at the beach.

This lesson is designed with a challenge objective and challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, whilst supporting your LA students.

Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations and objectives will work in your lesson.
