Confused, Please Help
Hi, I am stuck on a particular exercise. The problem is as follows:
A 550g piece of metal at 95.0 degrees celsius is cooled to 30.0 degrees celsius and releases 1.63 x 10^4 J of energy. What is the specific heat capacity of the metal in J/g degrees celsius?
Using the formula Q = mc(change in temp)
1.63 x 10^4 = 550g x 65 degrees x (c)
16,300 = 550g x 65 x (c)
16,300 = 35,750 x (c)
divide both sides of equation by 35,750
c = 0.4559
I know this answer is incorrect as it needs to correspond with a type of metal with that specific heat capacity, but that does not exist in my choices. I feel like I am doing this correctly in every way.
What am I missing?
