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).
