A 125-g piece of metal is heated to 288 degrees celsius and dropped into 85.0 g of water at 26 degrees celsius. If the final temperature of water and metal is 58 degrees celsius, what is the specific heat of the metal?

  • Chemistry - ,

    heat lost by metal + heat gained by water = 0
    [mass metal x specific heat metal x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
    Substitute the numbers and solve for the only unknown, the specific heat of the metal.
