“How can we measure the change in energy of an object when it changes temperature?”
Let’s consider something. We know that temperature is a measure of the average internal kinetic energy of an object. So logically, if there is a change in temperature, there is a change in the energy of an object. But how is it possible to measure this change? Well, luckily for us, Scientists and Engineers have come up with a special relationship relationship known as the calorimetry equation. This equation can be represented numerically as q=m*c*t, with q being the change in energy, m being the mass of the object, c being the specific heat capacity (a constant based on the material), and t being the change in temperature.
