Hi all,


I am currently writing a Design Lab for a Physics Lab Report. The aim of the task is to dip a resistor in a calorimeter filled with Deionized Water and measure the heat energy by the temperature rise in the water.


The issue I am facing is whether I can actually obtain Deionized Water. Is it possible to make Deionized water in a school lab? If not, are there any alternative methods anyone could suggest to measure the heat energy of a resistor?

Are there any alternatives to water, that I could use in the calorimeter?


I need this information before Sunday!!!!


Thanks in advance!

best thing to do would be to email your teacher asking if deionised water is available because i'm pretty sure at my school we have it but then our schools are on different sides of the world so it doesn't mean that much???
