I really really need help w/this problem I think i figured it out but i have to be sure i did it right in order to do others similar to it

please help

thanks

Metal Specific Heat (J/g-C)

Al (s) 0.900

Au(s) 0.129

Cu(s) 0.385

Fe(s) 0.444

Hg(l) 0.139

H2O(l) 4.184

C2H5OH(l) 2.46

A piece of metal at a temp of 95.0oC and a mass of 67.0 g is dropped into a beaker of water containing 100 g at a temp. of 30.0oC. If the final temperature reached is 42.7.0oC, what is the identity of the metal?

the sum of the heats gained is zero.

heatgainedmetal+heatgainedwater=0

95*cm*(30-95)=100*4.18(42.7-30)

1.28

would it be Au?
