## Homework Statement

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.

## Homework Equations

Q=mcdeltaT

## The Attempt at a Solution

first calculate Q for water.

Q=mcT

=(150g)

But what is c for water at 13.5degrees??? Problem, now I don't know what to do from here.
