00 g piece of copper metal is initially at 100. It is dropped into a coffee cup calorimeter containing 50.0 g of water at a temperature of 20.

A 1.00 g piece of copper metal is initially at 100.0°C. It is dropped into a coffee cup calorimeter containing 50.0 g of water at a temperature of 20.0°C. After stirring, the final temperature of both copper and water is 25.0°C. Assuming no heat losses, and that the specific heat (capacity) of water is 4.18 J/(g·K), what is the heat capacity of the copper in J/K?

Multiple Choice

  • 2.79 J/(g·K)
  • 3.33 J/(g·K)
  • 13.9 J/(g·K)
  • 209 J/(g·K)
  • None of these choices are correct.
