(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In order to find the specific heat capacity of an unknown material,

a 50g piece is heated to 80 degrees Celsius and fully immersed in a well

insulatyed calorimeter filled with 100g of water at 10 degrees Celsius raising the temperature of the water by 5 degrees, the heat capacity of the calorimeter is 20 J K-1

2. Relevant equations

MC delta T = MC delta T ?

3. The attempt at a solution

no idea to be honest

at first i thought i can just use Q=mc delta T to do this but i dunno what Q is :S
