the specific heat of copper is 0.093 cal/g degree celcius and the specific heat of silver is 0.057 cal/g degree celcius. If 200 cal of heat is added to one g of each metal at 25 degree celcius. which one of them will have higher temperature
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
heat gained = specific heat capacity * mass * change in temperature
200 cal = 0.093 cal/g degree Celsius * 1 g * ( T2 - 25C)
T2- 25 degrees celcius = 200 cal / 0.093cal/degree celcius
T2- 25 degrees celcius = 2150.54 degree celcius
t2 = 2150.54 + 25
t2 = final temperature= 2175.54 degrees Celsius
200 cal = 0.057 cal/g degree Celsius * 1 g * ( T2 - 25C)
T2- 25 degrees celcius = 200cal/ 0.057 degrees Celcius
T2- 25 degrees celcius = 3508.77 degrees Celcius
T2 = 25 +3508.77
T2 = 3533.77 degrees celcius
silver will therefore have a higher final temperature.
