well i jst had a question regarding my specific heat & Co. homework.

ok here it is:"When a 25g block of metal alloy at 215 degrees celcius (i dont know how to make that round degree symbol on here) is dropped into 85g of water at 22 deg.C, the final temperature is 37 deg.C. What is the specific heat of the alloy?

i worked it out 2 different times and got 2 different answers each time. :uhh:

once i got15 J/(g*degrees Celcius)and then the second time i got1.2 J/(g*degrees Celcius)

any help at all appreciated!!!!!! thanks in advance!!!!!
