A metal container, which has a mass of 9.4 kg contains 14.2 kg of water. A 1.7-kg piece of the same metal, initially at a temperature of 160.0C, is dropped into the water. The container and the water initially have a temperature of 15.0C and the final temperature of the entire system is 17.0C. Calculate the specific heat of the metal.


I got 124.73 but when I put units in it says it's wrong. What are the units? Please help. Units always confuse me.
