Problem 78

Alloys When a 58.8-g piece of hot alloy is placed in 125 g of cold water in a calorimeter, the temperature of the alloy decreases by 106.1C, while the temperature of the water increases by 10.5C. What is the specific heat of the alloy?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 78

Alloys When a 58.8-g piece of hot alloy is placed in 125 g of cold water in a calorimeter, the temperature of the alloy decreases by , while the temperature of the water increases by . What is the specific heat of the alloy?

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

The heat energy quantity that basically gets absorbed to create an increment in the temperature of a particular compound containing unit mass, with one degree C or one kelvin is named as “specific heat”.

The given mass of alloy is 58.8 g.

The given mass of cold water is 125 g.

The temperature change in alloy is .

The temperature change in water is .
