131 calories of energy to heat it from 10.0◦C to 90.0◦C. Calculate the specific heat of metal X.
Answer in units of J/g ·◦ C.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

bobpursley,
change 131 c to Joules.
divide by 27.4
divide by 80

Randy,
Sorry, but I don't understand. Haven't done this in a while. I divided 137 J by 27.4 and then 80, but I get 0.05 as my answer.
is that correct?

bobpursley,
You didn't change 131 calories to Joules first.
