A 22.44g sample of iron absorbs 180.8J of heat, upon which the tempature of the sample increases from 21.1 C to 39.0 C. What is the specific heat of iron?

  • Chemistry -

    q = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial).
    Solve for specific heat.

  • Chemistry -

    180.8=22.44 x c(39.0-21.1)
    c= 0.450 Jg-1.C-1
