    locate c, the specific heat of aluminum, on a table... use units for mass that agree with the units of the value you have for specific heat...

    is the specific heat for aluminum 0.920 J/(g c)? is that what ur asking for?

    do you want me to google that in order to verify that it's the correct value or something?

    ok so i take that and i multiply it by the mass which is 10g but how do i find the delta t?

    from 120 to 80 is a change of?

    if you had 6 twenties in your wallet and then you checked again in a few minutes and you only had 4 twenties, what happened?

    you lost 40 dollars

    120 -> 80 is a change of -40

    so it would be negative 40?

    ok so the formula would be 5*0.920J*-40 then i would get my answer?

    so its -368 J

    sure but the question asks how much heat is lost... so if I asked you how much money you lost in the earlier example... what would you say?

    -40 dollars? or 40 dollars?

    negative 40

    "I lost negative forty dollars" does anyone ever say that?

    "lost" means "negative".

    no lol so we would say we lost 40 thermal energy?

    temperature decreased -> heat was lost.... delta T is negative delta Q is negative delta Q = -386 J means 386 J was lost
