Specific Heat is the quantity of heat required to raise a gram of any substance by 1 degree Celsius.

Specific Heat formula is given by

C=∆Q/m∆T

where Δ Q is the heat gained or lost,

Δ T is the temperature difference.

Temperature difference is given by Δ T = (Tf - Ti), where Tf is the final temperature and Ti is the initial temperature.

Given:∆T=10.0°C

∆Q=2.35kJ =2.35*10^3 J

m=525g=0.525kg

C=2.35*1000/0.525*10

=2.35*1000/5.25

=447.61904 J/kg°C

Hence,specific heat of iron according to the above data is 447.61904 J/kg°C.

Answer can also be written in J/g°C.

Then,the specific heat value will be 0.44761 J/g°C.

The temperature of a silver bar rises by 10.0 Co when it absorbs 1.23 kJ of heat. The mass of the bar is 525 g. Determine the specific heat of silver.

Q = c m ∆T

c = Q / m ∆T

c = (1.23 x 10^3 J)/[(0.525 kg)(10 °C)]

c = 234 J/kg-°C
