1. The specific heat capacity of aluminum is 0.900 J/g·K. What quantity of heat is
required to heat 5.60 kg of aluminum from 20.0 °C to 358.7 °C? 2. The initial temperature of a 215-g sample of graphite (c = 0.720 J/g·K) is -82.1 °C. If
the sample absorbs 15.2 kJ of heat, what is its final temperature? 3. What is the mass of a sample of water (c = 4.184 J/g·K) that loses 340 J of heat
energy in cooling from 50.0 °C to 20.0 °C? 4. A 26.47-g piece of lead, initially at 89.98 °C, is dropped into 100. g of water at
22.50 °C. When the system reaches equilibrium, the temperature is 23.17 °C. What is the specific heat capacity of lead?
5. A piece of gold (c = 0.129 J/g·K) with a mass of 14.7 g is heated in boiling water to
99.5 °C and then dropped into a calorimeter containing 30.0 g of water at 19.6 °C. What equilibrium temperature will the system reach?
