55 kJ of heat are added to 200 kg of a metal at 28.00◦C and the temperature rises to 29.18◦C. What was the metal?
1. tungsten (specific heat = 0.134 J/g ·
◦ C)
2. copper (specific heat = 0.385 J/g ·
◦ C)
3. silver (specific heat = 0.233 J/g ·
◦ C)
4. lead (specific heat = 0.127 J/g ·
◦ C)

  • Chemistry -

    q = mass metal x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
    Solve for specific heat and compare in tables.
