The temp of the water rose to 21.3 , determine the specific heat of the alloy in J/gC "

Technique:

use the formula

c= q/delta t

what do you plug in for q ?

you would have

c = q/1.7 ?

what do you get if you know what to plug in for q ?

ok well it seems like you could also average the two temperatures of the water and that could give you a value, would that value be your heat transferred or your delta T

and then the alloy at 88.6 degrees C would be another value to be plugged in, where could you plug it into as q ? ?
