In the laboratory a student uses a "coffee cup" calorimeter to
determine the specific heat of a metal.
She heats 19.5 grams of tungsten to 97.80°C and then drops it into a cup containing 78.3 grams of water at 22.58°C. She measures the final temperature to be 23.20°C.
Assuming that all of the heat is transferred to the water, she calculates the specific heat of tungsten to be J/g°C.
