If the water had lost 12000 joules and the calorimeter gained 1300 joules as the temperature of both rock and calorimeter increased from 22°C to 73°C and the mass of rock in the calorimeter was 189 grams, what is the specific heat, c, of the rock material?

    If the water had lost 12000 joules and the calorimeter gained 1300 joules, then the rock gained the difference in energy.

    c = ∆E/m∆T = (12000-1300)/(73-22) [J/g·K]
