Calculate the energy in joules and calories required to heat 40.0 silver from 112 degrees to 280 degrees

• Chemistry -

q = mass x specific heat x delta T.
I assume 40.0 blank is 40.0 grams silver. q will be in joules if you use specific heat in J/g*C and it will be in calories if you use specific heat in calories/g*C.
