A 150 g sample of metal at 55.0 C raises the temperature of 150 g of water from 23.0 C to 35.0 C. Determine the specific heat of the metal in J/g C.

Hint: #1 First find heat absorbed by water using formula q = mass x specific heat x change in temp (of water).

#2 Use this value to solve for specific heat of the metal. Remember final temperatures is the same for both metal and water.

Specific heat of water is 4.184 J/g C
