# Application of heat capacity 2

Chemistry Level pending

Suppose that $$61.0$$ g of a hot metal, which is initially at $$120.0$$ °C, is plunged into $$100.0$$ g of water that is initially at $$20.00$$ °C. The metal cools down and the water heats up until they reach a common temperature of $$26.39$$ °C. Using $$4.18$$ J K$$^{-1}$$ g$$^{-1}$$ as the specific heat capacity of the water, calculate the specific heat capacity of the metal.
