From erin: Hi-
2 kg metal requires 1.00 X 10^4 J of heat to raise its temperature from 20 degrees C to 40 degrees C. What is the specific heat capacity of the metal? Answered by Janice Cotcher.

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) . . . Answered by Harley Weston.
