Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Brigid on Thursday, May 7, 2009 at 3:26pm.

I'm trying to determine the specific heat of copper by experiment and I have a question about the change in temperature of the copper. If I take the copper out of boiling water at 100 deg. C and place it in water at 10 degrees C, the temp. of the water increases to 14 deg. Is the change in the temperature of the copper 100-14=86 deg. or is it just the 4 degrees that the water took to increase its temperature by 4 deg.
