Two metals of equal mass, A and B, both at a temperature of 25 degrees celsius, are placed in separate but identical beakers of cold water. Metal A has a larger specific heat than metal B. Metal A is in Beaker 1, and metal B is in Beaker 2. Which beaker (if any) will exhibit a greater change in temperature, and why?

    Why don't you make up a number for mass, say an easy one like 10 grams, make up a number for specific heat (say 10 and 20), and calculate delta T for each. Then you will know which will change the most.
