The specific heat of water is 4.184 J/g celcius, and that of aluminum is 0.897 J/g degrees celcius. Which substance will show a large increase in temperature upon the addition of 100 j of heat to 100 g, the aluminum or the water? show calculations.
2. A few iron nails with a total mass of 22.4 g are heated in a water bath for five minutes. The water bath was boiling with a constant temperature of 101°C according to the thermometer. When the nails were carefully transferred into 182.0 g of water in a coffee cup calorimeter the temperature of the water rose from 25.0°C to 26.0°C. What is the heat capacity of the iron?
3. What change in temperature would you expect from your calorimeter if it contains 60.0 g of water at 25.0°C and you add 50.0 g of silver that has been heated to 100°C?
