1.how do you calculate the specific heat of a metallic element if 314 joules of energy are needed to raise the temperature of a 50.0 g sample from 25.0 degrees c to 50.0 degrees c.
2. how do you propose a method for determining the specific heat for a metal like sodium which reacts with water
q = mass x specific heat x delta T.
2. what about using a liquid other than water?
