COMPARING SPECIFIC HEAT CAPACITY<br />
Aluminum Melts More Paraffin Than Lead<br />
(2 of 5 - Variations Available)<br />
A metal with a higher Specific Heat Capacity- the quantity of energy needed to raise temperature of a unit 1 degree-  is a better conductor. (Al=900; Pb=128). Raised to the same temperature, aluminum holds and releases more heat to melt more paraffin.
