    okay, the heat energy from the alloy is used to increase the temperature of water from 25 to 37C so you can figure out the heat energy gained by water. \[Q=m \times c \times \Delta T\] then use the value of heat energy and all the given value for the alloy to find the heat capacity of the alloy in the same equation.
