Lead weights 2004-01-26
From Jeff:
I am making a mold for my decoy anchors. I need 10 - 12 lead ounce weights. How would I determine the liquid measurement for that weight? For example if I melted down 10 ounces of lead how many cups would that be or quarter cups etc?

I would like the formula if I could and good instructions on how to use the formula.

Specific heat 1999-12-22
From Irena:
In transferring 1260J of heat to water, the temperature of 0.20 kg of mercury falls 50 K. Calculate the specific heat capacity of mercury using the equation C= Q/(m)(delta t)

i know that Q= -1260J because it's loosing heat and m= 0.2kg and since i have to use 'C i have to convert Kelvins into Celsius (i also know that 'C has to be negative since it looses heat)
