    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?

    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?

    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?

    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?

    "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
