If 72.4 kJ of heat is supplied to a 752 g block of metal, the temperature of the metal increases by 9.95°C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of the metal in J/g·°C.

I cannot find the information in my textbook, and I don't understand the equation needed to do the work on the summer assignment...

q = mc*delta T

q = heat = 72,400J

m = 752g

c = specific heat = ?

dT = 9.95

Solve for c.

q = mcdT

72 400 = 752 X C X 9.95

C = 9.676 J/C
