a chunk of pure silver has a heat capacity of 42.8J/degrees celsius and a mass of 181g. calculate the specific heat of silver. can you show me how to solve it? please don't just give an answer

  • chemistry - ,

    heat capacity has units of J/degree C.
    specific heat has units of J/g*C

    So specific heat x grams = heat capacity.
    Plug in g and heat capacity and solve for specific heat. I get something like 0.2 J/g*c

    thank you very much for helping!
