Description:

The purpose of this experiment is to see how a high or low heat capacity will affect a material's heat retention qualities if the material was to be used as a warmer. The hypothesis was that a higher heat capacity would mean better heat retention and that the stone would have the highest of both. The experiment was conducted in two phases.
