Calorimetry and Heat Capacity

APCHEM-XL4UX0

Three unknown metals, A, B, and C, are placed in boiling water and allowed to come to room temperature. Each is then transferred into separate beakers containing 100 g of water at 10.0$^o$C.

Metal A causes a change in temperature of 13.5$^o$C , Metal B causes a change in temperature of 12.6$^o$C, and Metal C causes a change in temperature of 14.2$^o$C. All three metals transferred the same amount of heat to the water.

Which of the following metals has the highest heat capacity, presuming each metal has the same mass?

A

Metal A.

B

Metal B.

C

Metal C.

D

The heat capacity of the metals can not be determined with the given information.
