posted by brandi .
What is the specific heat of Aluminom if it takes 1100 calories to take the temp. from 10 degrees C to 80 degrees C and the block of Aluminon has a mass of 60 grams?
q = massAl x specific heat x (Tf-Ti)
q is 1100 calories
Tf is final T
Ti is initial T
mass is 60g
solve for specific heat (in calories).
