A piece of chromium metal with a mass of 24.26g is heated in boiling water to 98.3C and then dropped into a coffee-cup calorimeter containing 82.3g of water at 23.3C. When thermal equilibrium is reached, the final temperature is 25.6C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of chromium.
You determine that 187 J of heat is required to raise the temperature of 93.45g of silver from 18.5 to 27.0C. What is the specific heat capacity of solid silver?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 4:55 pm ad1c9bdddf
1) Let specific heat capacity of chromium be s cal/gm/C
Heat energy given by chromium = heat energy taken by water at 23.3 C
m_Chrom * s_chrom * (ti_chrom - tf) = ...
This solution provides step-by-step calculations for finding specific heat capacity using calorimetry.
