🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Vollhardt's class at CAL.

Solution: A bar of hot metal is placed in water in an insulated container and the two are allowed to reach thermal equilibrium. When 1.0 kg of metal at 100°C is placed in 2.0 kg of water, the temperature water bath raises from 20°C to 25°C. What is the specific heat capacity of the metal (J/g K)?a) 0.5b) 1.5c) 0.22d) 25e) 0.025
