The specific heat of silver is 0.057 calories/gram°C. If 10.0 grams of silver were heated and the temperature of the sample changed by 20.0°C, how many calories of heat energy were absorbed by the sample?

(A)3,508 calories
(B)0.029 calories
(C)11.4 calories
(D)0.114 calories

    (d) 0.114

    The answer would be (D) because you have to multiply the 20.0C to 0.057 and that will get you 1.14 than you divide it by the 10 grams and you should get 0.114 or .114
