ok my professor lost me when explaining this material so please bare with me and help me step by step
one of the questions is:
after absorbing 1850J of energy as heat, the temperature of a .500-kg block of copper is 37C what was its initial temperature (the specific heat capacity of copper metal .385J/g K) i have looked in my book for a formula and for the life of me i cant find one!!! PLEASE HELP ME i need step by step with the formula

• chem -

q = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
Solve for Ti.
