A piece of a newly synthesized material of
mass 25.0 g at 80.0

C is placed in a calorimeter containing 100.0 g of water at 20.0

C. If
the final temperature of the system is 24.0

C,
what is the specific heat capacity of this material?

  • chemistry -

    [mass material + specific heat material x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
    Solve for Tfinal.
