## rainbow22 Group Title When 45g of an alloy initally at 100 C is dropped into 100 g of water at 25 C, the final temperature is 37 . What is the specific heat of the alloy? 1.77 is the answer. 2 years ago 2 years ago

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.
