The Specific heat of a substance is the energy (joules) required to raise one gram of substance by one degree celsius (units J/g °C).
Heating 225.0 cm3 of a solid from 36.1 °C to 74.3 °c takes 35850 J of energy. The density of the solid at 36.1 °C is 1.75 g/cm3.
What is the Specific Heat of the solid in this experiment

• Chemisty -

q = mass x specific heat x delta T.
Use the density to convert volume of the solid to mass. Solve for specific heat

Thaks would you be able to show me an examples, as I still don't quite understand it. Sorry but this is my first time doing chemistry.
