3. Based on your answer in question 2, determine the percent error of your calculated specific heat capacity value of your unknown metal using the specific heat capacities of known metals below.

Metal Specific Heat Capacity
Nickel 0.440
Tin 0.210
Silver 0.237
Magnesium 0.140
Calcium 0.650
Mercury 0.140
