In a laboratory experiment, a calorimeter is used to find the specific heat of an unknown metal. 100.0 grams of dry metal shot are placed in a cup and heated to a temperature of 95 °C. The calorimeter is partially filled with 150 g of water at 20.0 °C. The mass of the inner aluminum cup and of the aluminum stirrer is 60.0 g. The hot shot is poured quickly into the cup and the calorimeter is sealed. After the system has reached thermal equilibrium, the final temperature is 24.0 °C. What is the specific heat of the metal?
