I'm a high school student and I have a test soon. I know the basic equation we are using (Q=mCdeltaT), but I having extreme difficultly employing them to get the answer I need, I'm currently stuck on this practice problem: A 0.925 KG mass of water is place in a container (mass .156 KG) with a specific heat of 903 J/Kg C, The initial temperature is 26.0 C. A .255 KG piece of metal (95.0C) is dropped into the water. The final temperature of the water is 31.5 C. What is the specific heat of the metal? Help, please? I have more problems, and if you have the time, it would be nice if you could AIM me at "CannonballSU".
