Did not know if it was right

2. ## Re: Chemistry heat

Why did you write the problem two times?

Q=m·c·Δt

Q· m·Δt=c
This last equation obviously should be c = Q / (m · Δt).

g °c
The answer is correct, but please write expressions in one line and use parentheses to change the order of operations, e.g., C = 2.09 J / (g · °C).
