Question:

23. A piece of solid copper with a mass of 20 g initially at 200 °C is placed inside one fully sealed calorimeter with 100 g of

23. A piece of solid copper with a mass of 20 g initially at 200 °C is placed inside one fully sealed
calorimeter with 100 g of liquid water initially at 20°C. Both solid copper and liquid water exchange
heat arriving at the equilibrium temperature of 23.25 °C. Knowing that the specific heat capacity of
liquid water is equal
to 1 cal/g °C, calculate the specific heat capacity of the solid copper.
A. 0.09194 cal/g °C
B. 0.9194 cal/g °C
C. 0.009194 cal/g °C
D. Not enough given data to find out
