a 100.0 gram metal sample is heated to a temperature of 110 degrees celcius then placed into a calorimeter containing 100.0 r of pure water (at initial temperature of 23 degrees celcius). after the sample and water reach thermal equalibrium, their final temperature is 29 degrees celsius. what is the specific heat capacity of the metal sample in calories/g*degrees celsius.
