A chunk of silver has a heat capacity of 42.8 J for 1ºC and a mass of 181g. Calculate the specific heat of silver.

  • Chemistry!! -

    The specific heat (C) is the heat capacity (M*C) divided by the mass (M).

    The heat capacity is the energy required to raise the entire mass by 1 degrees C. In this case, it is 42.8 J/C.
    42.8/181 = ___ J/(gC)

  • Chemistry!! -

    42.8 divided by 181 equals 0.236
