This is practice for a test but I'm confused so I wanted to ask a few questions before taking it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A total of 74.8 J of heat is required to raise the temperature of 18.69 g of silver from 10.0 to 27.0 oC.

What is the specific heat of silver? Show the equation, your substitution, and the answer.

Do I use this equation? Heat = mass * specific heat * change in temp (Using words instead of symbols/letters is easier on here.)

If so, how exactly do I do it? I tried it but when I checked my answer I was way off. The answer the teacher has down is "74.8 g = .235 J/goC"
