A precious-stone dealer wishes to find the specific heat capacity of a 0.036-kg gemstone. The specimen is heated to 95.0C and then placed in a 0.17-kg copper vessel that contains 0.086 kg of water at equilibrium at 25.0C. The loss of heat to the external environment is negligible. When equilibrium is established, the temperature is 29.5C. What is the specific heat capacity of the specimen?
