A 27.4 g sample of metal X requires
131 calories of energy to heat it from 10.0◦C to 90.0◦C. Calculate the specific heat of metal X.
Answer in units of J/g ·◦ C.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

  • Chemistry -

    change 131 c to Joules.
    divide by 27.4
    divide by 80

  • Chemistry -

    Sorry, but I don't understand. Haven't done this in a while. I divided 137 J by 27.4 and then 80, but I get 0.05 as my answer.

    is that correct?

  • Chemistry -

    You didn't change 131 calories to Joules first.

    Oh, haha.. Thanks a lot. Very helpful. =]
