Consider the following metals.
Metal
Specific Heat
copper
0.385 J/(g · °C)
magnesium
1.02 J/(g · °C)
mercury
0.138 J/(g · °C)
silver
0.237 J/(g · °C)
0.129 J/(g · °C)
If the same amount of heat is added to 25.0 g of each of the metals, which are all at the same initial temperature, which metal will have the highest final temperature?
