# A student heats 68.15 grams of silver to 98.73 °C and then drops it into a cup containing 78.21 grams of water at 23.04 °C. She measures the final temperature to be 26.47 °C. The heat capacity of the calorimeter (sometimes referred to as the calorimeter constant) was determined in a separate experiment to be 1.88 J/ °C. Assuming that no heat is lost to the surroundings calculate the specific heat of silver. Specific Heat (Ag) = J/g°C.
