Homework Statement



I am unable to find the specific heat of certain substances. Examples of such substances are: Sucrose, Citric Acid, and Trinitrotoluene. I need one source for the information in this data, and I am unable to obtain it using a search engine. Is there anyone who actually indeed might have this data or know of a site to be able to find the specific heat for these substances?

Homework Equations



(Equations are simple to figure out once I have the specific heat of the three substances)

The Attempt at a Solution



Using a search engine, as well as trying to use my chemistry book. My teacher is of no help since she wanted us to do this on our own.

*Any help is appreciated*

Why aren't you allowed to look up constant values?

The source which you want is a handbook of chemistry & physics. college and public libraries have them.

The CRC handbook might be your best bet because I don't think the Merck Index has it.
