# Application of heat capacity 2

Suppose $$61.0$$ g hot metal, which is initially at $$120.0$$ °C, is plunged into $$100.0$$ g 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. Calculate the specific heat capacity of the metal, using $$4.18$$ J K$$^{-1}$$ g$$^{-1}$$ as the specific heat capacity of the water.
