mass of the metal 7.26g
volume of water in the calorimeter 10mL
initial temp of water in calorimeter 21.5 degrees C
initial temp of metal 95.5 d C
final temp in mixture in calorimeter 23.8 D C
calculate the energy lost by the metal taking into consideration that it is equal to the energy absorbed by the water plus the correction factor for the calorimeter
