It takes 770 joules energy to raise the temperature of 50.0 g of mercury by 110°C. What is the specific heat of mercury?
The specific heat capacity of mercury 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:
