An object with a mass of #110 g# is dropped into #750 mL# of water at #0^@C#. If the object cools by #70 ^@C# and the water warms by #3 ^@C#, what is the specific heat of the material that the object is made of?
This question is based on the concept that
The equation to find the change in heat is
Since no density or mass for water is given, it can be assumed that
Using the change in heat equation,
Solving this for the desired variable,
And plugging in the numbers
Using a calculator
