A piece of metal A and a piece of metal B of the same mass and at the same temperature of 80°C are dropped into seperate beakers each containing 100.0 g of water at room temperature. Once they equilibrate, you find that the beaker with the sample of metal A is warmer than the beaker with the sample of metal B. Which metal has the larger specific heat capacity?
