Question

A coffee-cup calorimeter of the type shown in Figure 5.17 contains 150.0 g of water at 25.1°C. A 121.0-g block of copper metal is heated to 100.4°C by putting it in a beaker of boiling water. The specific heat of Cu(s) is 0.385 J/g•K. The Cu is added to the calorimeter, and after a time the contents of the cup reach a constant temperature of 30.1°C. (b) Determine the amount of heat gained by the water. The specific heat of water is 4.18 J/g•K.
