A piece of iron with a mass of 35 g is heated to 1305oC and then placed in a calorimeter containing 600 g of water. The temperature of the water increases from 25oc to 33oC. The specific heat of water is 4.184 J/g X C. Calculate the specific heat of the iron.

  • Chemistry Science -

    heat lost by Fe + heat gained by H2O = 0
    [mass Fe x specific heat Fe x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass H2O x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial)]= 0
    Substitute and solve for specific heat Fe.
