A 0.0409 kg ingot of metal is heated to 233◦C
and then is dropped into a beaker containing
0.38 kg of water initially at 19◦C.
If the final equilibrium state of the mixed system is 21.4
◦C, find the specific heat of
the metal. The specific heat of water is
4186 J/kg ·
◦ C.
Answer in units of J/kg ·
◦ C.
