I am still having issues placing these numbers in the correct spot. Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction, or share some links that would help me with this further.

you are given , , and ... solve for - September 16th 2012, 07:11 PMLouisana1Re: Chemisty confusions
47.5J(13.2g)(4.18j)(1.72c)= 341.506 grams

signif digits 341.5

Is this right? - September 16th 2012, 07:37 PMLouisana1Re: Chemisty confusions
Q=m·c·Δt

47.5 joules = 13.2g·4.18Joules·1.72°c

47.5 = 94.90272g

Do I divide this I'm not sure if this is right?Can someone point me in the right direction? - September 17th 2012, 04:06 AMskeeterRe: Chemisty confusions

substitute in your given values and calculate the specific heat, C.
