An aluminum calorimetry cup [mc = 0.6 kg, cc = 0.22 kcal/(kgC)] is filled with water [mw = 2.4 kg, cw = 1 kcal/(kgC)]. It is at a temperature of 30C. A sample of an unknown substance with mass mm = 2.34 kg, originally at a temperature of 210C, is added. After a while, the temperature of the water is 35C. What is the specific heat of this material?
