A 15.0 g of sample of silver is heated to 100.0 0C and then placed in a constant-pressure calorimeter containing 25.0 g of water at 23.0 0C. The final temperature of the system was measured as 25.0 0C. What is the specific heat of silver?

  • chemistry -

    The sum of the heats added is zero.

    Heat gained by silver+heat gained by water=0

    masssilver*Csilver*(25-100)C+masswater*cwater*(25-23)C=0
