Development of Specific Heat Capacity Instrument Based on Arduino As Teaching Media of Temperature and Heat Topic

Siti Nurjanah, Yusro Al Hakim, Eko Setyadi Kurniawan


The Development of Specific Heat CapacityInstrument based on Arduino to measure specific heatcapacity and find out the student’s respond actually at heat and temperature topic has done. This  refers to the Model ADDIE: analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. The subject of the research is student at grade X (science) IPA 1, MA Syamsul Huda Kedungreja. They are 23 students. The data is collected by literature study, observation, interview and laboratorium test. The result of development is average of specific heat capacity of Aluminum (0,215 ± 0,000) cal/gr 0C, and the average of specific heat capacity of Iron (0,106 ± 0,001) cal/gr 0C, by the Table of standard Alumunium 0,215 cal/g 0C and  Iron is 0,107 cal/g. It proves that development of specific heat capacity has been accurate. The validation shows it is 82,85% with good category. The effectiveness of the teaching and learning with this  is 85% with very good category, the student’s respond increases to 82,98% with very good category. Therefore media of specific heat capacity with Arduino is proper to use in class.
