Is there an equation for you to plug these numbers into?

\[Q=(m)(c)(\Delta)(T)\]

I'm not too sure which one to use.

How come we use that equation even though there isn't really a change in temperature?

It says the temperature increased 3.6 degrees C so that is the temperature change

Ah, I see. But we don't have to calculate a temperature change in this case, right?

Nope! its already done for you! :)

The heat capacity would be "c" in the equation?

yes!

If i'm correct, the water is just something thrown in there to mess you up, but Q is the -26.42

So this would the equation
-26.42= (0.7521)(c)(3.6)

C is the heat capacity

would the answer be -9.76J?

Thats what I got!

would you like the link?

Sure!

i found 1 more explanation actually!

this person did it with less math

That looks less confusing but thats above what I know

Alright, great! Thank you.

No problem!
