A 28.2 g sample of nickel is heated to 100 degrees C and placed in a coffee cup calorimeter containing 150g of water at a temperature of 13.5 degrees C. After the metal cools, the final temperature of the metal and water is 25 degrees C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of nickel.
The Attempt at a Solution
first calculate Q for water.
But what is c for water at 13.5degrees??? Problem, now I don't know what to do from here.
