Specific heat of alloys

  1. Dec 2, 2008 #1
    I have an alloy and found the average specific heat of the metal to be 289 J/kg°C. I need to know what type of metal it is. I've looked at several different tables of specific heats, but can't find what I'm looking for. Can anyone help me?

    By mixing copper and gold you can get an alloy of specific heat 289 J/kg°C.
