Textbook Problem

You determine that 187 J of energy as heat is required to raise the temperature of 93.45 g of silver from 18.5 °C to 27.0 °C. What is the specific heat capacity of silver?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The specific capacity of silver has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1g of substance by 1K.Energy gained or lost can be calculated using the below equation.

  q=C×m×ΔT

Where, q= energy gained or lost for a given mass of substance (m), C =specific heat capacity,ΔT= change in temperature.

Explanation

Given,

  q= 187J

  Mass = 93.45g

  ΔT=8.5K

Substitute the values in q=C×m×ΔT
