When a metal at a higher temperature is transferred to water at a lower temperature, heat is inevitably lost to the calorimeter. Will this unmeasured heat loss increase or decrease the calculated value of the specific heat of the metal? Explain.

not measuring all of the heat that was lost by the metal, 

leads to the calculation that gives a smaller specific heat than the metal actually would have
