The specific heat of copper metal was determined by putting a piece of the metal weighing 39.4 g in hot water. The quantity of heat absorbed by the metal was calculated to be 47 J from the temperature drop of the water. What was the specific heat of the metal if the temperature of the metal rose 3.10°C?

  • Chemistry -

    q = mass x specific heat x delta T
    Solve for specific heat. I think Cu has a specific heat of about 0386 J/g*C.
