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° 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?

Please can someone tell me how I would work this out step by step using the q=mcΔT formula.

  • Chemistry -

    Use the density and volume of the solid to compute the mass.
    q = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial). solve for specific heat.
