Two solid objects, A and B, are placed in boiling water and allowed to come to temperature there. Each is then lifted out and placed in separate beakers containing 1000 g water at 10.0 degrees Celsius. Object A increases the water temperature by 3.50 degrees Celsius; B increases the water temperature by 2.60 degrees Celsius. (A) Which object has a larger heat capacity? (B) What can you say about the specific heat of A and B?
