Homework Help: AP Chemistry

Posted by Jane on Monday, November 30, 2009 at 9:41pm.

One last question....

Which of these two metals (Aluminum or Copper) would be a better choice to make silverware out of?

Specific heat of:
Al = .901
Cu = .39

my guess was the aluminum, because it would take longer for it to get hot, since it requires more heat. This would benefit if there was a hot dish.

... But i'm not sure. What are your thoughts?

Thanks :]
