## Homework Statement

I'm asked to find the specific heat of Metal X in this simulation:

http://group.chem.iastate.edu/Greenbowe/sections/projectfolder/flashfiles/thermochem/heat_metal.html

Mass of Metal X = 120 g

Temp of Metal X = 220 degrees

Mass of Water = 30 g

Initial Temp of Water = 20 degrees

Final Temp of Water = 85.6 degrees

Specific Heat of Water = 4.186 J/gram C

## Homework Equations

ΔQ = mCpΔT is the equation for finding the heat needed to change the temperature.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Qwater = mwater*cpwater*change in temperature

Qwater = 30*4.186*65.6

Qwater = 8238.048 J

I think the Q of the metal would be -8238.048 J. I'm not sure what to do from there.
