calculate the specific heat for 18.5-g sample of tin that absorbs 183 J when its temp increases from 35.0 degrees celcius to 78.6 degress celcius. I don't know where to even start, help?

    Note the correct spelling of celsius.
    q = mass Sn x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
    183 = 18.5g x sp.h. x (78.6-35.0)
    Solve for sph.
