i'm not sure if you use the Q=(s)(m)(delta t) equation or not since it asks for the specific heat not the specific heat capacity.. i dont know if theres a difference or not...

**DrBob222**, Sunday, June 6, 2010 at 7:50pmspecific heat is a shortened version of specific heat capacity.

Use 1 = mass x specific heat x delta T.

**Ashley**, Sunday, June 6, 2010 at 7:55pmare the joules supposed to be on the side where the 1 is?

so its 314= 50x specific heatx 25?

**DrBob222**, Sunday, June 6, 2010 at 8:02pmSorry, I made a typo. That should have read

q = mass x specific heat x delta T. I hit the 1 instead of q.

Yes, 314 = 50 x sp.h. x 25. Solve for sp.h.
