Heat of Aluminum?

What is the specific heat of aluminum if it takes 1100 calories to have the temp. from 10 degrees C to 80 degrees C and the block of Aluminum has a mass of 60 grams.


The specific heat of pure aluminum is 0.23 BTU/lbm- deg F. That is also equal to 0.23 cal/g-deg C So lets see how close this is. 1100 calories/(60g * 70 deg C) 1100cal/4200 g - deg C = 0.262 cal/ g - deg C I believe that to be right
