35.5 grams of an unknown substance is heated to 103.0 degrees Celsius and then placed into a calorimeter containing 100.0 grams of water at 24.0 degrees Celsius. If the final temperature reached in the calorimeter is 29.5 degrees Celsius, what is the specific heat of the unknown substance? Show or explain the work needed to solve this problem, and remember that the specific heat capacity of water is 4.18 J/(°C x g). Can ANYONE help with this, I am sooo lost :(
