1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hello, I'm having some trouble with a lab report. I am supposed to find the specific heat of five metals but I don't know exactly how to use the equation correctly. for instance I have copper at 70.2g, the delta T at 1.8 degrees Celsius, specific heat of copper is 385 J/kg-degrees Celsius. 2. Relevant equations Q=MC*delta T C=Q/M*delta T 3. The attempt at a solution I used the standard value of copper's specific heat to find Q then plug Q back into the second equation to find our lab's value of copper's specific heat. This however gives me the same answer of course. My teacher wants us to use our data to come up with coppers specific heat and compare it to the actual specific heat but I can't figure out how to get a value for Q without using coppers standard specific heat. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
