Three 75.0-g samples of copper, silver, and gold are available. Each of these samples is intially at 24.0 degrees C, and 2.00 kJ of heat is applied to each sample. Which sample will end up at the highest temperature?

  1. q = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tintial)
    2000 = 75 x specific heat x delta T
    specific heat = 2000/(75*delta T)
    high sp.h. = lowest delta T
    low sp.h. = highest delta T
