If equal amounts of heat are added to equal masses of silver and copper, both at the same initial temperature, which will reach the higher final temperature? Explain your answer. The specific heat capacity of silver is 0.235 J/g degree Celsius and that of copper is 0.385 J/g degree Celsius.

  1. q = mass metal x specific heat metal x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
    An easy way to do this is to assign some convenient number for q, give it some convenient starting T and solve for Tfinal.

    Or you can reason it out. If sp.h. Ag is 0.235 and that of Cu is 0.385 then it takes more heat to heat Cu than Ag to the same temperature.

    or still another way.
    q = mass Ag x 0.235 x delta T
    q = mass Cu x 0.385 x delta T.
    But mass is same so for Ag
    delta T = q/0.235 and for Cu
    delta T = q/0.385
    So for same q, the smaller denominator gives a greater delta T.
