The water was heated by the hot metal to a temperature of 21.0 degrees Celcius. What is the specific heat of the metal? Is it possible that the metl is gold?

    [mass M x sp.h.M x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass H2O x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
    solve for sp.h. M
    I don't think it's Au.

    Note the correct spelling of celsius.
