Question

A piece of chromium metal with a mass of 24.50 g is heated in boiling water to 98.3 °C and then dropped into a coffee-cup calorimeter containing 82.3 g of water at 23.4 °C. When thermal equilibrium is reached, the final temperature is 25.7 °C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of chromium. (The specific heat capacity of liquid water is 4.184 J/g ⋅ K.)
