A 4.0 g sample of iron was heated from 0°C to 20°C. It absorbed 35.2 J of energy as heat. What is the specific heat of this piece of iron?
The specific heat capacity of the iron is
The formula for the heat absorbed by a substance is
#color(blue)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a) q = mcΔT color(white)(a/a)|)))" "#
You can rearrange the formula to calculate the specific heat capacity:
