  1. heat lost by mtal + heat gained by H2O = 0

    [mass metal x specific heat metal x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0

    Substitute the numbers and solve for specific heat metal which is the only unknown in the equation.

  2. Be careful with the units. If you use the water as 100 g I would change the metal from kg to grams.
